Wooden Spoon Carving
Carving decorative and useful utensils from wood is an ancient skill. Learn the easy, time-honoured and low-tech way of carving creative spoons and gifts out of wood. Revel in shape and colours, whilst learning safe carving and finishing techniques to enable you to continue on your own.

Hannah Ehlert trained for three years in a coppice worker apprenticeship with a variety of crafts people at the Bill Hogarth Memorial Trust. She has run successful creative green wood-working courses for nine years, including hazel wattle hurdles, Swedish spoons and greenwood carving and baskets and willow structures in the garden.
The workshop fee is £70 with an additional material charge of £10. The fee includes a tasty 2 course lunch with home baked bread and cake and refreshments throughout the day. We like to finish the day with a cup of tea and slice of cake. Eat outside or enjoy lunch by the wood burner.
This workshop will be at Cowshed Creative, based in a traditional converted Lakeland barn at Browfoot Farm. The art studio is a stunning open plan space with plenty of room to wander outside and take inspiration from the amazing Lakeland landscape and environment of the peaceful Kentmere valley. Make it a special break and stay on the farm.
