Mora ’bout Spoon Carving is a throw-back classic bushcraft spoon carving skills course. Led by Willow Haven Outdoor Owner, Creek Stewart, you will learn 2 popular methods for carving beautiful wooden spoons. One method involves coal burning your spoon bowl and the second is taught using a Mora Hook Knife which is included in the course registration fee and is yours to keep when the clinic is done – hence the course name Mora ’bout Spoon Carving.
Natural wood blanks will be provided or gathered from the Willow Haven Forest. It will be our goal to complete 1 finished spoon during the 4 hour course and make headway into the second. You will be taught best practice skills for carving spoons that are not only works of art but that are also very functional – at home or in the forest. The first few minutes of the course will be spent on knife and tool safety. Creek will also cover how to care for and oil your newly carved spoons.
This course can be taken rain or shine – either outside by the campfire ring or inside our Willow Haven Lodge. There will be a 1/2 hour lunch break so please bring a packed lunch. Bottled water is provided free of charge.
