Spoon Carving Workshops

Spoon Carving Workshops

Something new for Gloucester Studio started at the weekend when Jane Gray-Wallis ran her first Spoon Carving Workshop with us.

I’ve known Jane for a few years and last October she invited me along to one of her workshop’s at Westonbirt Arboretum. It was a brutally cold day but it was fascinating seeing my rather ahem rustic spoon emerge from a piece of wood. I was immediately struck by the idea of spoon carving by a cosy fire with plenty of hot drinks on tap and Jane was happy to give it a try.


After a fire cooked lunch (of course), the students got stuck in. Jane is a very hands on teacher and when I popped my head in to see whether they needed anything I was astounded at the progress they were making.

The workshop lasted for three hours (with a break for Baked Alaska from the smoker – I’ll be blogging about that on Friday) and everyone went away with a finished spoon.

There are two spoon carving workshops in the diary. They cost £45 per person and include soup and fire cooked bread and a fire-cooked cake midway through the afternoon.

Do keep an eye on the events page or Facebook as 2019 will feature lots of new workshops and events.

Flame on.
