Spoon Carving Workshop Using White Memorial Ash with Andy Dobos @ White Memorial Museum | Litchfield | Connecticut | United States

April 20, 2019

Trees have been used by people to make useful and beautiful objects as far back as we can imagine. Spend a few hours learning to transform pieces of white ash from White Memorials landscape into a spoon or ladle (or both if you’re a quick study). Instruction will include how to use tools such as knives, chisels, hatchets and saws safely and effectively. This is a great introduction to woodcarving of any kind.

If you have them, bring a carving knife, drawknife, spokeshave, wood saw and/or sharp hatchet. Andy will have tools to share if needed. 10:00 a.m. Meet in the Activity Shed (next to the Museum). Limited to 10 participants. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required. Call 869-567-0857 or register online.  Members: $25.00, Non-members: $50.00
