Half Day of Spoon Carving - half day or evenings
One of the most satisfying things we teach folk on our bushcraft courses is to be able to make their own wooden spoon. To be able to select a suitable stick, split it and carve useable useful spoon from it.
This spoon carving session will do just that, either in a half day session or an evening or series of evening sessions.
