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.

Cost: $5 for Members; $8 general admission
