Spoonsmith, Jeff Donne, is from Pambula on the beautiful NSW Sapphire Coast. He travels around much of Australia with his roving Spoon School and makes wooden cutlery buddies to take with you on your favourite foodie adventures. He starts with a sustainably sourced tree and uses only simple hand tools and a sprinkling of lost ways to make a range of soulful goods. Shaping wood by hand for the sake of happy growing and eating is something that he likes to share, so he also passes these skills onto others through a range of workshops to suit everyone from beginners up.
