@ Rock & River, Wood Ln, Mawdesley, Ormskirk, Lancashire. England. L40 2RL
A fun and relaxing weekend of wood carving workshops, camping out in the Lancashire countryside.
With expert guidance and tuition throughout the weekend, the Wood Carving Weekenders are suitable for all levels of carving experience; whether you’re a newcomer to the world of carving or just looking to enhance and build upon previous experience. Beyond the group workshops, there will be plenty of time for one to one tuition, support and advice to suit your individual needs.
Encompassing the whole process of spoon carving from sustainable wood selection and spoon design principles to tool selection, knife work and finishing you will gain a strong foundation of knowledge and insight into this traditional creative craft; a set of skills that you can easily adapt to carve almost anything, not limited to spoons! With a strong focus on my principles of working with, and understanding the characteristics of the wood, participants of this two day workshop will design and hand carve their own unique wooden spoons to take away with them.
With the camp fire burning and tools put away, the Saturday evening will be an opportunity to relax, ease aching hands and talk with likeminded people, sharing experiences and knowledge and forging new friendships.
All weekend courses include overnight camping (please bring your own tent), campfire cooked lunches on both days, all tools, wood for carving and an endless supply of hot drinks.
You also have the option to buy and take home the tools you will be using during the weekend; a Morakniv 120 Carving Knife and a Hans Karlsson Hook. Included in the tool kit will be two silver birch spoon blanks and finishing paper to take home with you. Should you wish to do this, please select the option from the drop down box below before clicking the ‘Book Now’ button.
If you are travelling from outside the UK and can’t bring your own tent I can arrange for one to be provided for you. Please email me for more details once you have booked your place.
Places will be limited to 10 per weekend to ensure that everyone gets the most from their experience.
Arrivals between 5pm and 10pm on the Friday night or on Saturday morning from 8am. Workshops start at 10am Saturday morning.
