Japanese Spatula / Swedish Slöjd Workshop
In the morning we will take a log of Cherry or Chestnut, split it into flat spatula shapes and using hand tools, including carving axes, drawknives, and spokeshaves, create beautiful and functional Japanese Spatulas. 

In the afternoon we will delve into the enchanting world of Slöjd (Swedish handcrafts). We will take a log and split it into spreader shapes, with the use of an axe and carving knife, we will carve simple and beautiful butter spreaders and decorate them with chip carving and milk paint. 

This is a perfect introduction to green wood working workshop with no previous experience required, and yet it is also suitable for more advanced woodworkers wishing to enjoy refining simple shapes into ergonomic and beautiful designs. We will also touch on aesthetics such as finishes and signatures
