Mit fogunk csinálni?

The session lasts for around 4 hours, and may include a short walk and talk to source appropriate wood from the surrounding forest. Then a mixture of short demonstrations and lots of hands-on making and coffee. We use hand tools only, axe and knife, with are provided, and we will be based in the barn conversion space with beautiful mountain views (when not intently focussed on the spoon carving!). We aim to produce a cooking spoon from branch to useable item. It is a very satisfying (and slightly addictive) skill and simple in materials and tools, but as complex as you wish to make it when considering grain and ergonomics, combined with historical reference and aesthetics. There's more to a simple spoon than you may think..
Other things to note
Max 2 guests normally, but please message with a request for a larger group as it is possible for me to teach up to four. I could visit other locations or your place of work to provide this workshop.

I am a Chartered Architect and Maker in rural Argyll, and I love spooncarving. I started 7 years ago after attending a one-day course, and I haven't stopped! We converted a beautiful old farm house 2 miles up the glen from Lochgolihead, working from home and raising two boys and a few other animals. I spend quite a lot of time out on the mountains, sometimes rescuing people, sometimes lower down in the woods collecting storm-fallen wood for carving. I am familiar with lots of the local trees and the characteristics of them that make them suitable for spoons. I sell my spoons and teach.

Hol leszünk?

Drumsyniebeg Farm is a historic farmhouse two miles outside Lochgoilhead village, and just over an hours (very scenic) drive from Glasgow. Architect conversion of the house creating openplan space to carve a jolly mess of woodchips in with stunning views.
Friendly CATS and a DOG live here too, so please let me know if you have allergies and I will see what I can do!

This experience was amazing- what a way to spend a birthday! Anna was so welcoming of us into her beautiful home. It was a cold and windy day but we felt so cosy looking out at the beautiful view. Anna was a great teacher- she was able to accommodate us both when we were both at very different levels. Anna made it safe, educational and most of all fun! I would definitely recommend - we have already bought our own axe and my parents are finding a time they can go after hearing us rave about it!

Really fascinating hands on morning of spoon carving. Anna’s place is amazing, her dog incredibly friendly and her teaching clear and accessible. We’ve been inspired to continue making spoons - already ordered an axe!
