Plymouth CRAFT hosted 2 workshops after the Greenwood Fest 2016. Our model festivals do the workshops first, but we were making things up as we went along, or had scheduling conflicts, or something. So we did them after. One way this was an unexpected benefit is that often you don’t want an event like this to end. So it didn’t have to…
JoJo Wood taught her master class in eating spoons. These are the hardest spoons to make – they HAVE to be right. Cooking spoons & serving spoons can be strange & still work. Just look at my work for evidence of this.
It begins with accurate, well-thought-out hatchet work:
Then, she was not bashful about telling all the old duffers where to cut their spoons to shape…
Working right beside Chris, saying “have faith, cut it like this…”
Meanwhile, Jogge Sundqvist taught his distaff class…a real challenging exercise in shapes, knife, hatchet & drawknife work, & design.
The tin-can opener grasp can be hard to grasp. Jogge helps illustrate proper technique.
Showing where some of these cuts are applicable in spoon carving.
These students made excellent examples…
Except this one – it doesn’t count. It’s Dave Fisher!
His class in bowl-carving is next – July 30/31 http://www.plymouthcraft.org/?tribe_events=bowl-carving-with-dave-fisher
