Dave Atkin spoon carving

Spoon Carving Workshop

16th Sep 2022

We are running a series of free workshops throughout 2022 as part of The Skell Valley Project.

The Skell Valley Project is an innovative, four-year scheme co-led by the National Trust and Nidderdale AONB to rejuvenate the 12 miles of the River Skell in North Yorkshire. Through this £2.5 million project, supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund and others, the project will work with local farmers, landowners and volunteer groups. Together, they will improve the landscape’s resilience to climate change, help nature to thrive, protect and conserve heritage and increase people’s access to green spaces following the coronavirus pandemic.

On Friday 16 September (10am-1pm) at the Workhouse Museum & Garden we will be carving spoons with Dave Atkin. Join Dave in the museum gardens for a 3 hour spoon carving taster session. The session will cover Health & Safety, basic axing techniques, basic knife cuts and safe handling techniques.

The activity will take place outside. Sharp tools will be used to make the cuts and a good level of manual dexterity is required. 

There are just three places on this workshop, to take part please email [email protected]
