Wat je gaat doen

Come spend a relaxing couple of hours learning the slow craft of spoon carving. This is not a race to the finish kind of class. We will go over knife safety, knife grips, and different kinds of knife strokes and practice on a stick before going onto your spoon blank. We axe out the spoon blanks before you arrive , so all you have to do is enjoy carving your spoon. There will be periodic breaks, and hand stretching as well as an axing demo by Erik so you can see how a spoon blank is made. This class will last three hours.
Other things to note
You will be carving a spoon from fresh green wood. We will be using knives and spoon hooks to make our spoon. Hand strength and an open mind to a new experience are helpful. Left handed welcome too.

Erik and Michele have been spoon carving since 2013 and teachers of green wood carving since 2015. Erik and Michele have been featured in Msp Magazine as Makers of the North competition. They currently host classes in thier studio and at various spaces around the city including Ingebtretsens Scandinavian Market and Fool Proof work space.

Finding influence from Erik’s Norwegian heritage and our visits back to his dads farm in Norway, the couple hope to share what they’ve come to appreciate from the lifestyle and culture of Norway with thier students.

Erik was an amazing host and my friend and I enjoyed this workshop very much! The spoon carving itself was quite meditative and relaxing and Erik was diligent in explaining the different knives and techniques. We are both super happy with our finished spoons and trying to figure out how to work carving into our regular lives! Thank you Erik!

Super-fun morning for a father/daughter duo looking to spend some time together in celebration of Father’s Day. Erik is very knowledgeable, smiley and fun! Had a blast and learned a ton, would even take the class again.

Erik was a terrific host and carving expert. The class went by quickly, very engaging and with skill building tips throughout the class. He made it easy to follow and always helpful when needed. I could not have learned this without his help. I felt like I was up north - great shop to work in. Great neighborhood too!!

A top notch experience. Started the night thinking “there is now way I’ll be able to create something in the time we have” and ended the night feeling accomplished and surprised by what I made. A very laid back time, and Eric and Michele really know what they’re doing and are eager to help.
