Benchspace Bites – Wood Carving-Butter Knife – CRAFT MONTH

This event is part of our August CRAFT MONTH Series.

Benchspace Bites are short introductory sessions for beginners where you can make your very own piece in a single class.

Want to get started in woodworking but don’t know where to begin?
Suitable for beginners, this wood carving workshop is designed to provide you with a strong foundation to create all sorts of carved objects.

Using hand tools, tutor Tom will guide you through the steps and techniques used to carve a block of wood into an object using a type of carving called whittling. The main focus will be on the tools and the skills around using them safely and efficiently, giving you the skills and confidence to start your own carving journey.
You’ll not only learn a new skill, but will create your very own hand carved Butter Knife to take home and use for your morning toast, cheese board, as a beautiful decoration, or just to say ‘I made this!’

Materials are included in the cost of the workshop and no experience is necessary.
We are fully inclusive and all skill levels (Adults 18+) are welcome, however, please note that this course requires hand-eye coordination and the ability to follow precise instructions with regards to safety.
