7th Annual Driftless Spoon Gathering
September 13 – September 15
In this skill-sharing event, spoon carving instructors and carving hobbyists will gather together to carve, learn, and share techniques. All levels of experience are welcome, and beginners will be well cared for.
Listen to the sound of hatchets hewing and help fill the floor with wood shavings. Enjoy the tradition of a Spoon Pass and the opportunity to purchase spoons, bowls, and tools from talented artisans.
Held at La Farge Village Park, La Farge, WI (additional $10 or $20 fee for camping can be made payable to the Village of La Farge). Basic carving knives and sharpening supplies will be available on loan to beginners and for purchase. Bring spoon blanks and green wood (if you have them) and lunch & snacks. Coffee and tea will be available. Bring something for a potluck gathering Saturday evening. Camp in the park Friday and Saturday night, if you like. On Friday night, meet at the communal campfire for fellowship and stories. Workshops and carving begin Saturday with coffee at 9am and demos at 10am.
Instructors Tom Wheeler & Terry Beck (and friends!)
