About The Workshop
Practice a variety of safe knife grips and techniques, learn how to find suitable wood and the proper tools and their maintenance. There will be time to focus on creating smooth curves, clean facets and bold bevels to produce beautiful utensil forms. The small knives offer opportunity for individual design and embellishment. Knives are sanded smooth and finished with a light oil. By the end of the day, you will have one, maybe two, uniquely designed butter knives. No carving experience needed.
