One-Day Spoon Carving Workshop: Saturday 3/2 at Shelter

Carver Ken Wise
Join us on Saturday, March 2nd, for a full day of carving. Instructor, Ken Wise, has been teaching woodworking and carving for over thirty years. He brings blanks, tools and technique to help you build your skills in carving. This is a hands-on class using, primarily, hand tools. Demonstrations include design and layout, discussion of wood species and selection, tool selection and maintenance, techniques and finish techniques.

All materials and tools are provided for the workshop, but you can also bring any tools you would like to try. Hardwood blanks are provided for each student but please feel free to bring a special piece of wood if you have one on hand.

Each student in our last workshop completed one spoon and began a second one within the time frame of the class. Ken's ease with carving and shaping as well as his general patience is infectious. He sets a comfortable pace for woodworkers of all levels, and he's able to draw each student through the process. It is a great way to spend a cold winter day.

Register for the class online, or contact us for more information.
Cost: $45 per person
Date: March 2nd, 2013
Time: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Location: Shelter Campus

  1. The class today was great! Ken is a wealth of knowledge and being shown how to use some different tools was eye-opening. The bonus was ending up with a nice maple spoon/spatula to add to my utensils.
