As usual, we're building a great weekend programme full of workshops that will help you build your carving related knowledge and skills. We'll be welcoming expert spoon carvers and blacksmiths from around the world. Here's an idea of who we're expecting, with more to follow. 


I started spoon carving 10 years ago, enthralled by the possibility of starting with a very raw and readily available material and taking the creative process through to a functional finished item.  Since then I’ve been completely absorbed by the beauty of wood and simple life enhancing folk crafts. I’ve been influenced by Swedish and Eastern European wood craft traditions as well as design inspiration from ceramics, textiles, and architecture.
