Spoon Carving Supper

Spoon Carving Supper

...with Fay aka The Woodland Haberdasher!
While away a Sunday afternoon exploring the art of green wood carving, followed by a woodfire supper with your fellow carvers around the campfire. Supported by expert tutors, explore a variety of techniques to create your very own spoon, crafted from native sustainable wood.

This gentle and relaxed introduction to greenwood carving will be led by Fay Jones, The Woodland Haberdasher and Nick Gosman, founder of The Gosman Spoon Company, both local tutors with a wide range of experience in greencarving and offering contrasting techniques and approaches. With a maximum group size of 12 people there will be plenty of hands-on support from Fay and Nick.

They will guide you through the process of materials selection, design, carving and finishing techniques, after care and the use of various tools including axes, draw knives and shave horses. You will be able to choose the style of spoon or wooden cooking/eating implement that you wish to create, crank or straight handled, large or small, depending on your wishes.

As your carved creations take shape, Judith, the resident cook at Fire and Feast, will light the woodfire and prepare a tasty two course supper cooked on wood for the group to enjoy together, creating a relaxed and convivial end to your Sunday afternoon. There will be time for questions and conversations and an opportunity to savour the beautiful Suffolk countryside as you carve and dine.
