Description

FULL DAY WORKSHOPS | $85 + HST (ONE 6 HOUR CLASS ON A SATURDAY OR SUNDAY)

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.

Instructor - Adam Weaver

At an early age, Adam has been interested in Woodcraft, having helped build a cedar strip canoe with his grandfather. After nearly a decade of living in countries all over the world, Adam re-discovered an appreciation for authentic ‘lost crafts’. In 2013, he spent 6 months volunteering in rural Uganda, where he saw the craft of mask and drum carving. Later, he spent some time working on a farm in whales. Where he met a ‘bodger’, a man who carved stools out of greenwood. This was the first time he had seen a variety of old hand tools, and was inspired. Fast forward to today, Adam now teaches his own wood crafting course at the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design and continues to experiment with new techniques.
