At the weekend I made a trip across the border to teach a spooncarving course at the Woodland Skills Centre for a group including Rod Waterfield, the Centre manager.
They were a great group; lots of laughs over the weekend and hard work from everyone. I had to work sometimes to convince them to adopt my carving techniques which can feel awkward initially but are ergonomic and efficient once practised and they were amazed by the sharpness of my knives but all turned out good spoons and, more importantly, went home with the skills to make more.
Spoons, carved with love in Wales.
