About the event
Among the oldest known discovered spoons is one that ages 21,000 years. Eating food with spoons is truly an ancient human skill! No special knives required: we can use a glowing coal from the campfire to burn the hole for the bowl, and a utility knife, or carving knife, (or knapped stone saw) to craft the body of the spoon. This is a simple, safe introduction to the wide world of wood carving. If you've done it before, come again and practice!
Learn basic knife safety, several different fundamental carving techniques, and how to use a burning coal from the fire to make a spoon bowl. $35 includes all required tools, materials, tuition, one fermented beverage from Urban Farm Fermentory, and a tip for the bartender. Carving knives available for sale: $25
