We'll focus on carving techniques that will allow you to carve safely with confidence so you can create at home too. Spoon carving is great because the tools required are small and transportable, so you don’t need a workshop or a workbench. This workshop is designed to provide you with a strong foundation to create all sorts of carved objects.
