Its Spoon Moot time again! Now in our fourth year, come for a day or stay for the whole weekend!

We have something for everyone:

  • An Improvers workshop for those who want to develop their skills;
  • A Sharpening workshop to learn the importance of this all-important skill.
  • Drop-in workshops: Cordage, Birch-Bark Sheathes (if you have a drop-in mini-workshop you would like to run, get in touch)
  • Swap/ purchase table for your spoons
  • Pole-lathing , Chip carving demonstrations
