Carving wood is a tradition as old as time—so why not see what all the fuss is about!

In this beginner course, learn how to carve wood without the use of power tools. ​Join Timothy ‘Bjorn’ Jones in this beginner course and be a part of continuing that tradition. In this “back to roots” approach of working without the use of power tools, you will learn everything you need to know to continue your journey as a new woodcarver. The learning will focus around spoon and kuksa carving, with additional handouts given for carving a wood spirit after the course has ended (or during the course, time-permitting).

Topics & practice will include:

  • Utilizing both carving knives and chisels
  • Carving ‘from the tree’ rather than prepared lumber
  • Sanding, wood finishes, tool maintenance, sharpening, and more


Regular ticket price (April 19 @ 12pm – June 24 @ 11:30pm): $269
