We are very excited to host our 2nd workshop together with one of our dearest friends. If you didn't manage to grab a space last time- now is your chance. Wing will teach you the art of carving a wooden spoon. Such a simple yet beautiful craft to learn.
If you have visited Daheim before, you will know that we are crazy about wood. And cooking. This workshop combines both.
The WORKSHOP: You will learn to carve your own cooking spoon from blanks with an experienced teacher in a lovely small group. We will break for a lunch together which will be prepared in our workshop kitchen for you: Hot savoury strudel, pickles and salads.
The TECHNICAL BIT:
We carve the spoons from blanks (roughed out shapes) made from beech. To carve we use the classic Swedish Mora carving knife, as well as small gouges and Japanese rasps.
During the workshop you will learn about tool safety as well as various carving and sanding techniques, enabling you to create a beautiful handmade spoon you’ll be proud of. My wish, as a teacher, is that every student takes these skills away with them so that they may continue a lifelong love of carving.
The TEACHER: Wing has been working with wood since he was a young boy. Studying sculpture at university in the UK, he worked predominantly with wood. After university he went on to work as a carpenter and apprenticed a cabinet maker to fund his studio in London. During this time he also worked for an arts charity running wood carving courses for children and adults. Later on he became a woodwork teacher in Beijing and it was during this time he gained a love for carving spoons. Today he is based in Berlin and continues to experiment in new and interesting ways to make spoons and - wants to share his love for it.
The MONEY BIT: 67.- Euros for your 6 hour workshop including all materials and lunch.
TO TAKE HOME: An illustrated how-to-do booklet and a care kit with sanding paper and mineral oil for your spoon, to ensure you will be able to continue this craft afterwards.
Sadly spaces will be very limited due to space. Course will be held in English and German.
