Spire Woodshop

Spire Woodshop is located in Gloucester, MA and is a collaboration of two. We create a variety of wooden items ranging from spoons to furniture, each piece individually crafted. We aim to provide our community with handmade objects that are as beautiful as they are functional. Most of our products are created from locally sourced urban lumber, trees that are already being cut down or would have otherwise been discarded. We are interested in not only giving trees a second life but also telling a story of the community we live in through the furniture and goods that we create.

Saturday October 19th Spoon Carving Workshop

Class Description:

Learn how to carve a spoon from fresh cut wood. This course is designed for beginners and will cover wood anatomy, how to axe out a spoon blank from a tree or tree branch, knife holds and techniques, basic sharpening skills, as well as drying and finishing.

* If you are left handed, please select the LEFT handed tool set so that we can have the appropriate tools for you in class.

Each student will walk away with their very own cooking spoon as well as receive sand paper and oil/beeswax blend for finishing.

If you would like to keep carving, you can either buy the knives in advance here online or after the spoon class. A set of knives cost $65. We will also have sharpening tools and spoon blanks after class for purchase. Please bring cash or check for the tools.
