It is always amazing how much variety can be achieved with what is locally available. All of the wood used came from within 20 yards of the shelter and would have been used for firewood if not made into spoons. We used birch, sycamore, hawthorn and aspen with a range of abilities from beginner to advanced. It's lovely to see someone with their first ever spoon!

There is one place left on the spoon carving course with barn this Saturday due to a cancellation. If you are interested contact me straight away at eco.al.
Barn has agreed to stay over for a spoon club here on Sunday 20th May in the afternoon from 2pm. This is very informal with chat and tea around the fire or under cover if wet. Bring your own tools and ideas and see what others are doing too. No formal teaching but good to get inspiration from and to help others. No charge but you are welcome to bring something to cook for tea. I hope this will be a regular monthly 'club' for those interested in spoon carving etc. Not suitable for complete beginners but all other abilities welcome. Chopping blocks provided!
Location is TF4 3QX, number 5, GR SJ680056, car parking just past house on left. Contact no. is 07779 967710.
I will post pictures of the weekend activities soon.
