Edged tools and spoon carving:
1 day workshop
Cambridge Woodland Academy are proud to announce the first of our Adult Education courses. Our one day courses are designed with beginners in mind and aim to impart some basic skills and knowledge to start you on your bushcraft journey.
Our first course to run will be our Edged Tools and Spoon Carving 1 Day Workshop.
This course is intended to provide you with a working knowledge of the safe use of cutting tools, namely the axe, bushcraft knife, woodcarving knife and crooked knife in order to produce working kitchen utensils, with our main aim of producing a spoon.
You will also be guided through some basic tree identification and the different properties of different woods, in order to be able to identify suitable wood for your spoon.
You will learn how to select and collect the right wood in its raw state, split and rough out a blank and then proceed to carve a spoon which you will be able to take home with you.
We will also recommend further carving projects and if time allows produce other working kitchen utensils such as long handled spoons and spatula, to practice your new found skills.
All tools and materials are provided and are included in the price. There will be hot and cold water for drinks and a base camp style toilet for your comfort. This is a non-catered course and so you will need to bring along a packed lunch and snacks.
We recommend that you take a look at our Kit List below which details items we recommend you bring with you to make your time in the woods as comfortable as possible.
These courses are also ideal as team building workshops, or as an icebreaker event for colleagues in your workplace. Remember that if your not able to come to us but have a suitable space for a wood carving activity please contact us to discuss how we can accommodate you.
Course Duration: 9:30am - 4:30pm. (7 hours)
Course Venue: Cambridge Woodland Academy (Camp Elder), Chrishall Grange, South Cambridgeshire.
