The greenwood culture has been on the rise in recent years, as people seek mindful respite from the pace of modern life. If you are looking for a new hobby or to get some tips on how to start your spooning journey, we have created this one day introduction to spoon carving just for you. The workshop will cover aspects of spoon carving such as sourcing materials, tools, knife grips and how to carve a basic spoon. You will have plenty of time throughout the day to create your own spoon under the guidance of our Trainers, Neil and Ali, who have both been carving and creating with greenwood for a number of years in their roles as Forest School Leaders. To see some of Ali’s recent spoons head over to Ali Outdoors on Instagram
