The Great Scottish Spoon Hoolie
19-21 May 2023

Get together with spoon carvers in the woods, learn from great trainers, and improve your skills. Our flagship Great Scottish Spoon Hoolie is a must for all keen spoon carvers, whether you're an expert or a complete beginner.

The event

What your ticket includes

Your ticket includes entry to this small-but-perfectly-formed weekend event, access to four workshop sessions with our expert trainers, spoon club, food for the whole weekend, and camping. We kick off with a Friday-night social and go from there! Food is prepared by our team onsite and we source from local providers wherever possible, meaning you get to eat some of the best Scottish produce available. As well as all that, you can say you've become part of the Great Scottish Spoon Hoolie family!

I carved my first spoon in 2016;  having always loved the infinite variety in wood grain, and having always been interested in craft and making, finding greenwood carving, and specifically spoons was like a homecoming.  What gets me about spoons is their functionality – I’m interested in making beautiful things, but I’m even more interested if they’re useful too.  I like repeating shapes and striving for repeatability and consistency – to some, that’s boring, but to me it’s how I go deeper into this particular rabbit hole.

Big Spoons, Big Fun!

Join Werner for a prefest carving experience ahead of the 2023 Spoon Hoolie. You'll work with Werner to explore what's possible with big spoons, learn axe and knife techniques, and discuss decorative processes.
