Spoon carving workshop in Manchester

Part of my interest in moving to Manchester city was to bring the crafts I do, which are typically considered to be countryside based, into the city. I’ve already had success with my Learn to Scythe courses which I’ve held at a few locations in Manchester and this weekend I put on the first wooden spoon carving course in Chorlton-cum-Hardy.

Crafts are a fantastic way for people based in urban areas to engage with natural materials, tools and the pleasures of making and really important in my opinion as a counterpoint to most people’s screen-based daily routine.

We spent the day talking, laughing and making together using axes and knives to create unique cooking spoons from some lovely locally-sourced cherry wood.

I’ll be running more of these spoon carving workshops in Manchester, please sign up to my newsletter to be the first to hear.
