Intro to Spoon Carving

9:30-5:00 pm (or until your spoon is done) $120/person
Learn the art of spoon carving in this one-day introductory hands-on workshop! This timeless craft provides a lifelong tool that can be used and appreciated daily. And a new skill that you can use and share.We will focus on getting familiar with the woodworking tools and materials that are ideal for spoon carving. Each student will make a scraping/spatular type of utensil that they can take home at the end of the day. All tools and materials are provided. Registrants will receive a discount on any tools purchased in the week before or the week after this class.

This class is taught by Maine's own Valdemar Skov, a woodcarver, furniture maker and engraver, specializing in ornamental carving of fine furniture, accessories, and architectural details, as well as engraving. A woodworker since 1986, and self-employed since 1990, Valdemar has been formally recognized for his work by the Maine State Legislature and has been featured in numerous articles, including a profile in This Old House magazine. Valdemar works out of his studio in Waldoboro, Maine and teaches carving for the Comprehensive. His combined skills and experience as a woodworker and an instructor will ensure that you walk away from this workshop with a greater understanding and competency.

Because of the sharp hand cutting tools used in this craft, enrollment is limited to ten students and safety is a focus of the presentation. There are four spaces still available call (207-442-7938) or email today for more information!
