This is an introductory online spoon carving class and Q & A session. With a combination of photos, discussions and live demonstration, Erik and Michelle will share how they became interested in carving, and the history of Scandinavian wood carving. They also will share many different items they have carved. Although students will not carve their own spoon, students will have a good understanding of what is required to begin carving, what tools are needed, what wood is best to use when carving, plus other important carving details. This class gives all participants the chance to chat with these amazing craftspeople, asking the questions about spoon carving that you’ve always wondered but never had the chance to ask. Want to begin spoon carving? This is a great way to get a sense of what is involved.
Everyone will then be invited to join a spoon carving online club following this class. The donation-based online club is expected to meet regularly, with Eric and Michelle available to video coach participants as they each carve their own spoons.
