Green woodwork is one of the most accessible and enjoyable woodcrafts you can experience.
Using traditional tools to shape green (unseasoned) wood is a pleasure that is hard to match.
Join Stephen Ryan from Green Woodwork Ireland, who will teach you the skills needed to become a traditional spooncarver.
Each participant will learn axe and knife carving skills to produce their own spoon and butter knife made from locally sourced, freshly cut wood.
All tools and materials are supplied.
No experience necessary.
