Spoon Carving

August 6 last day to register is August 1
9:00 AM – 5:00 PM | $179

Light the spark for a new hobby and help fill your galley with your own craft! Join Jesse Weigel on the Boatshop commons to learn the basics of spoon carving with traditional tools and techniques. This 7-hour course includes a Morakniv carving set that you’ll get to keep, as well as all materials needed for the class and to take home. During the course, Jesse will demonstrate a plethora of different tools used in carving including the use of a shave horse and various hand tools that the beginner carver can aspire to. This class has a 3-student minimum.

Jesse is an Olympic Peninsula native, sailor, educator, and lover of wooden things. From instructing Outward Bound courses in foggy coastal Maine to setting square sails in the Baltic, one thing was ever-present: a trusty spoon.
