Learn how to carve a spoon from a fresh cut tree using traditional Nordic carving techniques. We cover tree anatomy, axing out a blank (roughed out spoon shape), knife holds for the hook & sloyd knife, drying, and finishing. This class is great for the beginner or the person wanting to learn Sloyd style carving. The class fee includes tool rental, materials, a finishing kit, and safety gloves. Please wear pants and close toed-shoes, as we are going to make some wood chips!

 This course will be held at Fireweed Woodshop in the Prospect Park neighborhood  in Minneapolis . It is limited to 12 people in order to offer more interaction with peers and instructor and to prevent the spread of covid-19, please do not attend class if feeling ill, we will refund you. All students are required to wear a mask. What is Fireweed's Covid policy?  FAQ here  

This course has 3 free seats for the BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) community to take this course at cost for the materials fee of $20. Fireweed  believes in wealth re-distribution while our nation has still not offered proper reparations to marginalized communities.  The course registration  will be waived for individuals who identify as BIPOC.

Course materials include: spoon blank, straight knife & hook knife rental, finishing kit, and cut-proof glove rental.
