Ticket Information:

  • Learn to carve greenwood spoon: $130.00



Foundation 2 GreenWood-Working (GWW): Learn to carve a greenwood spoon.

(Please note 'Foundation 1 Greenwood-working (GWW): Peg-making' is a prerequisite to this workshop).

This workshop is not just about a spoon, it is the second stage of you becoming a skilled Greenwood-worker. This workshop is an investment in skills that give you a wonderful point from which to turn your hand to many different future greenwood-working projects.

This workshop gives you the second instalment of greenwood-working skills following on from the Foundation 1 GWW: Peg-Making workshop.

This workshop introduces you to the ancient traditional tools & techniques including a draw-knife, shaving horse, spoon knives etc. You'll make your own wooden spoon from locally harvested timber, so you will go home with new skills and a spoon to cherish and use.

This course will be a pre-requisite to other future greenwood-working workshops e.g. Stool-Making, Chair-Making etc.

Once you have done this course you will be able to join the 'Spoon-Carvers Guild' so that you can keep coming to sessions to keep practicing your skills and carry on with some more spoon-carving projects.

Booking via the Rekindle website is essential. These workshops are costed not to 'make' money but to cover costs to ensure we can keep offering these workshops and other opportunities to learn new resourceful skills which are at risk of being lost.

We are a social enterprise and we work to create these opportunities to practice resourcefulness because it's good for us to create what we need from what we have, and it's good for the Earth too.

This workshop is at Rekindle's Resourceful Ōtautahi workshop at the Albert Hall, Ferrymead Heritage Park, Ferrymead, Ōtautahi Christchurch. You'll be sent more details after you book.
