Workshop with Overnight, Workshop Only
At Knoll Farm, May 22-23, 2021
We will teach you how to carve a beautiful spoon using 3 traditional tools: a crooked knife, a straight knife and a draw knife. We’ll start with a block of white birch or cherry and end with a beautiful and useful spoon that should last a life time. And we’ll cover the philosophy and the practice that’s needed for all the steps along the way.
The symbolism of carving your own wooden spoon is similar to the symbolism of Gandhi asking his people to weave their own cloth. Taking a specific action to do something with our own hands and minds reminds and encourages us of the greater things we can do.
The price of $225.00 per person includes wood, tools, instruction and 3 meals (lunch and dinner the first day, breakfast the second day) at the farm. If you choose to stay over at the Refuge at Knoll Farm on Saturday night, please add an additional $81.75 for accommodation ($306.75 total).
