FULL DAY WORKSHOP | edVentures
Carving useful kitchen items such as spoons is enjoyable, meditative and offers a unique avenue for creativity. We will start off with a piece of 'green' wood (recently cut from a tree) and end with a kitchen spoon. If cared for properly, these wooden utensils can last for generations! We will cover safety tips and use a wide range of tools, to get you on your way to becoming a 'cutting edge' woodcarver.
MATERIAL COST: $25.00 to be paid to the instructor on the day of the workshop.
The Instructor: Adam Birchweaver creates his work using age-old carving techniques picked up through years of experimentation. He has been inspired by his own grandfather, who was a renowned woodcarver in Ontario, and has drawn inspiration from artists such as Barn the Spoon and the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-sabi. Adam has shifted seasonally in and out of this craft for nearly a decade, and spent a number of years travelling and selling spoons in markets across Canada. He has made masks, bowls, cups, küksas, forks, chairs, bows, arrows, atlatls, and a lot more! Since 2017, Adam has offered workshops with the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design (NBCCD).
