Summer 2021 Virtual Folk School Series: Woodcarving Basics with Brendan McGarry
Jul 25, 2021
10:00am - 10:30am PST

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. 

Please email Education and Interpretation Coordinator, Kate Dugdale, with any questions. Please look in your receipt for the link to this program.

Cost: $5 for Members; $8 general admission
