Carving workshop: Learn how to carve a spoon.

Always wanted to learn how to carve or whittle but never found the time? Join us at the beautiful Secret Herb Garden near Edinburgh for this fantastic introduction to woodcarving with Forhands Studio. No prior experience necessary, just an interest and eagerness to learn!

In this workshop you will learn:

How to make a spoon from a prepared timber blank, including: Design and marking out, safe carving etiquette, how to hold and use a whittling knife and crook knife, a range of different knife strokes, finishing techniques, features and properties of timber and, time dependent, the basics of Pyrography.

Working from a blank of sustainably sourced green timber, you will design and mark out your spoon, carve the shape, finish it with sandpaper and custom made food grade oil, then have the chance to add pattern and detail using the art of Pyrography. You will finish the workshop with good grasp of carving skills and the use of both whittling and crook knives, and most importantly, your own hand-carved spoon!

The workshop will be run from 10.30 — 3pm with a break for snacks, teas and coffees, available from the lovely Secret Herb Garden Cafe.
