Workshops run for six weeks from Friday 4th November to Friday 9th December 1- 4pm

Book in advance for all six workshops or come to individual sessions.


Join spoon carver Graham Beadle and experience the 'Spoon Zone' - the place many spoon carvers enter as they loose themselves into the craft of spoon carving.

Starting from identifying suitable woods, safe use of the axe and knives to designing and carving your own butter knife and then onto a simple but useful spoon to use later.

Working with one of natures most useful materials learn how to shape, hollow and finish your work in the peaceful natural environment that surrounds us at Oriel Davies. A creative yet practical experience.
