SPOON CARVING CLASS - NOV. 10, 2019

85.00

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 10, 2019
10AM to 4PM
HELD ON THE PATIO AT CORD (2916 NE Alberta St., Portland, OR)

We are thrilled to be collaborating with our good friend, Leslie Wolf Walters, in offering a one-day spoon carving class here at CORD. The class is designed both for beginners and those who wish to refine their carving skills. Leslie will teach all the steps and methods used to carve a freshly cut piece of wood into a wooden spoon using tools that are traditional to green woodworking--an axe and knives. The primary focus will be on knife skills, but the entire process from axe work to finishing techniques will be demonstrated, giving you the skills and confidence to precede on your green woodworking journey.

This is a one day class from 10AM to 4PM on Sunday, November 10th. The class will be held on the outdoor patio behind CORD. A campfire will be burning, but be sure to bring plenty of warm clothes suitable for cool weather. There will be one 30 minute break for lunch, so feel free to bring something to eat and drink. After class gather around the fire and have a beer on us!

All wood materials and tools will be provided for use during the class, but the axes and knives are also available to purchase at CORD. Should you wish to purchase your own tools, either before or after the class, a 10% discount will be offered to everyone enrolled in the class.

About Leslie:

Over the past six years, Leslie Wolf Walters has been deeply involved in green woodworking. He has traveled the country to learn from experts, offering carving demonstrations and teaching handcraft and traditional tool usage along the way. “Handcraft is an important part of human culture," he notes, "but the ability to create things that enhance your life from simple tools and natural materials is sadly no longer a common skill. I’m obsessed with the northern forests and the traditional crafts of the people who have called, and still call, these places home. I draw a lot of influence from Scandinavian Sloyd, but also find inspiration from forest cultures and crafts around the world. Something as simple as a spoon can enrich even the most mundane meal. Knowing who made it and where the materials came from can give you a real connection to such a simple item. My spoons are made with local, sustainably harvested wood and are completely hand crafted with traditional hand tools. Consciously designed to prioritize function over adornment, I still like to add folksy decorations that will hopefully make you smile every time you pick them up."
