POP UP: SPOON CARVING WORKSHOP
Spoon Carving Workshop with Melanie Abrantes Studio
Designer Melanie Abrantes will lead you in hand carving your own wooden spoon using traditional Japanese tools and techniques. The class will start with a discussion of different wood types, an explanation of the tools required, and an overview of the techniques used to cut wood. Once you’ve acquired a basic understanding, Melanie will lead you in carving the bowl of the spoon with the spoon gouge, then designing and whittling the handle of the spoon. When the final design has been reached, you will sand and finish your wooden spoon with an all-natural finish. All supplies and tools will be provided to use during the workshop, with the option of purchasing the tools at a discounted rate to continue your wood carving at home!
