ONLINE: Summer 2021 Virtual Folk School Series: Woodcarving Basics with Brendan McGarry
July 25 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am
This class is a part of a summer-long series. You do not need materials or supplies for these classes. You can purchase access to all five mini classes at a reduced rate here.
Join Brendan McGarry in the basics of carving a wooden spoon from green wood, using traditional hand tools. There are many ways to carve a wooden spoon, but Brendan will demonstrate the process of creating a spoon starting with a log of wood and ending up with a finished spoon. While he carves, he’ll discuss the design, safety, and a bit of history behind this style of spoon carving. In the tradition of Sloyd, all carving will be done with only a few simple tools: an axe, a saw, a straight knife, and a hook knife. By combining these four tools you can make a plethora of spoons shapes and sizes, as well as small bowls.
Cost: $5 for Members; $8 general admission
