Learn how to carve a spoon!

with Phillip Doye of Fig & Spoon
Join Inverell’s friendly spoon carver for a fun day learning the basics of how to create your own cooking spoon out of wood, using conventional hand tools. ‘Everyone will start with a similar blank, and we will all end up with something individual at the end,’ Phill says. ‘They will be guided through the wonderful world of green wood working.’ Participants should wear closed shoes, all other tools will be provided.
