Spoon Carving Course

Spoon Carving: Beginners

The Course

Learn basic wood carving skills from a spoon carving expert and carve a version of a spoon found on the Mary Rose using axe and knife.

The Tutor

JoJo Wood has been carving almost since she could walk. She spent her early years travelling the world with her father, meeting craftspeople and amassing woodwork skills and knowledge. She is now one of the UK’s leading spoon carvers, teaching and giving talks internationally. JoJo aims to inspire more women and younger people to get into woodworking, teaching that technique wins over physical strength every time.
