Hand carving workshop with Twig to Table

Presented as part of the annual DESIGN Canberra festival (4-24 November 2019) which celebrates and promotes Canberra as a global city of design. A Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre initiative.

In this three hour introductory workshop you’ll learn how to use simple hand tools to create either a spreader knife or a tea/coffee/dry ingredients scoop that’s functional as well as beautiful. You’ll take home the utensil you’ve made, as well as all you need to finish your piece, including wood balm and care instructions.

Price includes use of tools, equipment and materials.

No experience needed. Suitable for ages 16+. Please wear sturdy enclosed shoes.

About Fiona

Fiona Glover has a lifelong interest in woodcraft and design, and was drawn to spoon carving due to its gentle and meditative process. She initially learnt traditional techniques in greenwood carving and has developed her practice to also work with seasoned hardwoods that are either recycled, or offcuts from furniture making that would otherwise go to waste.

Fiona shares her love of spoon carving by teaching workshops in Canberra, Sydney and regional New South Wales, while her hand carved woodenware is sold under the label Twig to Table at selected gallery shops and outlets.

Fiona is a current student of the Furniture studio at the ANU School of Art and Design.
