Spoon Carving at Insole Court with Lee John Phillips | Saturday, 04. July 2020

WHITTLING WEEKEND WITH LEE JOHN PHILLIPS

4TH AND 5TH JULY 2020

SAT 1:00-7:00

SUN 10:00-4:00

£130

Lee John Phillips is a founding member of Narberth Whittling Association, freelance illustrator and creative educator. When he’s not drawing everything in his late grandfather’s shed, he’s carving wooden spoons.

Join Lee at Insole Court for an introduction to spoon carving. You will learn about the tools you need to carve green wood and the safe cutting techniques to effectively remove waste. As well as the practical approaches, you will discover how to navigate grain orientation, what wood to use, the best places to source it and how best to treat it.

You will start the weekend roughing out a spoon blank with an axe before refining the shape with a knife and a hook. You will make a cooking spoon on the Saturday and a more complex eating spoon on the Sunday.

Spaces are very limited, so get in there quick!
