In this introductory, course participants will learn how to design and carve wooden utensils. Students will be shown how to safely and efficiently use the bandsaw as well as hand tools such as gouges, rasps, files, scrapers, and a variety of handsaws. Whether it’s spoons, spatulas, forks, knives, or something completely new – students will leave with a small collection of unique tools. Great for those who are new to woodworking or interested in getting started in wood carving. No shop experience is necessary.
