After 2 years online, we're ready to see you in real life again at what will be our sixth annual event! The Great Scottish Spoon Hoolie is the first and only spoon carving event in Scotland. Over a weekend in the woods, you'll learn from expert trainers and join a community of like-minded crafters, at all stages of their spooning journey. If you're interested in developing a new skill - or taking your spoons to the next level - then you'll want to be part of this very special event!

Happy Hoolie-goers

It was small. It was inclusive - I felt part of it not just an attendee. I learnt loads. I met some lovely people. Excellent value for money and who doesn’t love a fairy dragon for a barman!

What will I do at the Hoolie?

There's a full programme of workshops over the weekend, offered by our fantastic range of trainers. We've got courses aimed at all levels and experiences, from absolute beginners to those with more advanced skills. Workshops last around 2 hours, meaning you can fit in a lot over the weekend! Apart from that, there's plenty of time to learn from others and meet a whole host of characters, including our resident bar-dragon!

Who will I meet?

Apart from the crazy organisers, you'll have the opportunity to take part in workshops with spoon experts from across Europe. And you'll spend the weekend mixing with like-minded spooners, old and young, experts and beginners, Scottish and not. We're determined to keep our event open to all, but small enough to chat to most folk around the campfire.

What does the price include?

Your ticket includes entry to the weekend event, starting with a Friday-night social. It also gives you free access to up to three weekend workshops with our expert trainers - there's no need to pay any extra (although tips are always welcome!). And you can camp for free on our site. As well as all that, you can say you've become part of the Great Scottish Spoon Hoolie family!

Where is the event?

The Hoolie will be held in a beautiful old Pinetum on the Cardross Estate, in Stirlingshire, Scotland. We're very excited to share this amazing space with you.
