Join professional Spoonsmith, Jeff Donne, for a hands-on day of carving your own kitchen utensils using a small axe, some specialised carving knives and your hands.

Carve small spoons, butter spreaders, spatulas and spurtles straight from a tree using traditional skills and experience the blissful feeling of whittling away the hours at an unhurried pace.

Learn about sourcing sustainable materials, the basics of spoon design and how to safely turn a log into your favourite wooden spoon.

No experience is needed and all tools, materials and a leather apron are provided. All you need to bring is you, a pair of closed top shoes and a willingness to whittle.

Take home what you make!

Jeff is a professional spoon maker and green woodworker with close to 20 years experience in the trade.

He was trained in the craft of traditional woodwork and chair making by UK master craftsman, Mike Abbott, and when arriving in Australia 14 years ago he discovered a love of carving wooden spoons from locally sourced timbers.
