Join us for a fun filled day with master whittler Louise Forbes learning all the skills you need to carve your very own wooden spoon. Transform a gorgeous hunk of sustainably sourced Scottish wood into a carved masterpiece of your own design in just a day. Beware though ... spoon carving is addictive, after a meditative day of carving, filing and sanding in our bright and friendly studio you'll be hooked! All of the materials and tools will be provided, all you need to bring is an open mind and a big smile.
About Your Tutor
Louise is a designer/maker/teacher/gallerist who loves working with wood. She creates beautiful homeware items that will make the everyday a little more special. Spoons are Louise's favourite to make, and her best seller!! When she's not busy running the Tayberry Gallery in Perth, or wrangling architecture students at DOJCAD, she is busy enthusiastically passing on the delightful craft of spoon carving.
"The course was fantastic! Louise was a great tutor, very clear about everything we needed to know and do. She has an amazing passion for what she does, and I felt that transferred on to us as learners...I certainly felt it."
