Wooden Spoon Carving Traditions

Course Overview

Carving wooden spoons is a tradition in Scandinavia, where carvers crafted spoons for home use, for seasonal income, and to give as gifts. The techniques, designs, and embellishments commonly used today are deeply embedded in centuries of cultural history, but spoon carving is also a vibrant and growing craft tradition globally. This course is suitable for beginners and advanced students alike and covers basic techniques, while also delving into design, ergonomics and layout, woods and wood grain, sharpening, finishing, painting, decorating, and history and theory of the practice. This course format with two instructors allows students to pursue their own project interests with more support while enjoying the company of other spoon enthusiasts.

Students are strongly encouraged to register for an optional 4th day at a discounted cost of $50; please select the option during registration or call us in advance of class at (218) 387-9762. Please note this course is open to all levels, but requires a basic amount of hand strength, stamina, and focus to be able to complete projects listed. Being able to open a sealed jar is an example of basic hand strength.
