Homesteading Skills: Spoon Making with Spire WoodShop

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Please join us our Homesteading Seires! These classes are meant to reunite us with the land that support us through traditional craft education, skill building workshops, and field experiences.  Using Appleton Farms as our classroom, our partners will lead participants through in-depth and hands-on educational programs to teach new skills and inspire appreciation for New England's natural resources.

Alyssa Pitman of Spire WoodShop in Gloucester, MA will lead you through how to carve a spoon from a fresh cut wood. This course is designed for beginners and will cover wood anatomy, axing out a spoon blank from a tree or tree branch, knife holds and techniques, basic sharpening skills, drying and finishing. Each student will walk away with their very own spoon as well as receive sand paper and flaxseed/beeswax oil for finishing.  After class you will also have the option to purchase the knives to take home. 8 person limit. Pre-registration required by registering online or emailing Caroline at crouillard@thetrustees.org
