Spring/Summer 2019 Workshop Series
Carve a Wooden Spoon: A Carving and Green Woodworking Workshop with Emilie Rigby
Learn to safely use a myriad of hand tools in order to carve your own wooden spoon! In this class we will be splitting logs of freshly cut wood and using hatchets and knives to carve them into beautiful and useful objects. You will leave this class with a spoon and enough knowledge to continue the craft. Tools available for purchase at the end of class.
Emilie Rigby is a self-proclaimed “crazy spoon lady.” She carved her first spoon 8 years ago, while sitting around a campfire with some friends. After 4 hours she had a very ugly spoon and some blisters to show for her effort. She realized that she had spent those four hours living completely in the moment. 8 years and thousands of spoons later, she is teaching others how to carve so that they too can live in the moment. These days, you can find her in Portland, OR driving around in her camper van and picking up logs from development sites to turn into spoons.
COST: $30 plus a $10 materials fee (Please pay material fee directly to the instructor.)
BRING:water and a journal, please bring a sack lunch and/or snack (Hot tea and coffee provided.)
