Greenwood Spoon Carving// Nov 23rd// 10 AM to 5 PM with Wild Food Lunch
A day of greenwood spoon carving at the beautiful Hawk and Hawthorne in Barnardsville, NC. Learn the process of transforming a fresh, greenwood log, to a beautiful spoon. Done in the traditional way, we'll focus on hand tools, techniques, their usage, and maintenance. Kids with a parent or guardian are welcome.
A gluten free, dairy free wild food lunch will be available with seasonal ingredients to bring you closer to this special bioregion foraged and prepared by the instructors.
Please bring sharp knives and hatchets, but tools will be provided and available for purchase in limited quantity. If you'd like to bring your own, we recommend the 106 and 124 straight Mora knife, or 162 and 163 hook knives, as well as a Flexcut 3/8" spoon gouge.
