Friday 8 December
11am – 4pm

Bring your whole team and join us for a fun filled winter whittling party with master wood-worker Louise Forbes, learning all the skills you need to carve your very own wooden spoon. Bring your team, your boss, your family, or your besties and enjoy an excellent crafty alternative to a turkey dinner and disco this festive season! In this fun filled festive day out each of you will transform a gorgeous hunk of sustainably sourced Scottish wood into a carved masterpiece of your own design in just a day. Then you can head to one of our amazing local hostelries to rehydrate. 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. You can even pick up one of our special spoon carving kits in our shop, designed just for us with Louise’s expert help, with all you need to carry on carving at home.

You can add lunch as an optional extra too, provided by our friends at Artiz Pizza. Just select +pizza from the dropdown menu and they’ll deliver a selection of handmade artisan pizzas to keep you going through the day.

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.”
