from 3 hrs - full day - 24 hours | max 25 people/session | year through
During this woodcarving session you will learn all basic skills you need to know on how to carve your own unique spoon, spatula, butterknife, coffee scoop, cake-knife, shot- or coffee cup from green wood.
Master Maker and official Morakniv Ambassador Stijn van Oss will take you along: tree-knowledge, different types of wood, and how to read wood- and woodgrains. All steps will be covered like: pruning- and axe working skills, woodcarving techniques, boiling and drying process, sanding and oiling the wood.
After a clear explanation and demonstration you can start creating your own piece. It is always a joy to see participants working in full concentration. Participants often describe that participating this session brought them into a meditative state. After taking part they look different to trees than before when walking through a forest. We therefor also call it Wood Yoga!
We can prepare the ground shape of fresh wood pieces
We offer variety of sessions within woodcarving. From 'workshop only' sessions where you will be using our tools to full day sessions where all tools are included and you can take them back home.
