7 hours Class size 1 to 8     label £95

Looking for exciting days out in Edinburgh? If you love your DIY projects and your trusty toolbox, then you'll love this full-day spoon carving workshop!

Learn from a wood carving master how to use safe and efficient carving techniques with a variety of hand tools — from axes and straight knives to draw knives and hook knives.

By following good wood shaving techniques and regular stretching, you will learn how to carve for a considerable amount of time without getting tired or over-exerting certain muscles. This will help you to reach an amazing result in a shorter timeframe.

From the initial splitting of the log with a froe or axe, trimming this down with an axe, and on to carving finer details and decorations with knives — you'll learn and do it all!

By the end of this exhilarating wood craft workshop, you will leave with the knowledge and confidence to carve safely at home and kick start a new hobby! You'll also get to keep your amazing handcrafted wooden spoon (made from sustainable wood) to use at home or give as a DIY gift to a loved one!

Ideal for special events and occasions from birthday parties to team building activities right through to those simply looking for fun things to do in Edinburgh with family and friends.
