Kent Young Spoon Carving
1-day classes, SU,MO,WE,TH,FR
This is Kent’s second year at the Rendezvous. He learned to carve spoons over 50 years ago when he was intrigued watching spoon carving in New Hampshire. He has been carving them ever since. In 2013, Kent was chosen to participate in the Visiting Artist program offered by Boulder County. One of his spoons was featured on the cover of Edible New Mexico magazine. See his works on Facebook at Kent Young Spoons and on Pinterest at Hand Carved Wooden Spoons.
Class will begin with spoon carving history and move to a discussion about wood preferences and essential tools and tool safety. Each student will begin with a cherrywood blank and leave with a completed and ready-to-use in the kitchen spoon. Throughout the class, Kent will share tips and techniques for efficiently creating a beautiful spoon in a matter of just a few hours.
The full class fee of $75 is due at time of registration. Class fee includes cost of the blank.
Number of students: 1 minimum, 10 maximum. Perfect for intermediate carvers but all skill levels welcome.
Recommended tools: Small carving axe or hatchet, small carving knife, palm gouge, scraper. Kent will provide rasps, sandpaper, scrapers, and a Foredom flex shaft tool. (Kent has tools to accommodate 6 students.)
