Spoon crafting with Paul McCathie

Paul McCathie Goodleaf Tree Climbing

Tree climbing facilitator and founder of well-known Isle of Wight business Goodleaf Tree Climbing, Paul admits to being ‘slightly’ obsessed with trees and wood. Paul’s originally from New Zealand but he’s lived on the Isle of Wight for 13 years so he’s nearly a local!

Create your very own wooden spoon to take away and use. This will be your very own useable spoon, made by you…. No experience required – learn a new skill and create your own personal souvenir of the Isle of Wight.

1 spoons

We start with the raw materials, a log.  We’ll move through the process of turning that log into a functional wooden spoon that can be put into daily use in your kitchen.

You’ll learn about the basic tools needed for this craft and how to use them. We’ll start with an axe to break down the log into useable pieces and form the basic shape of your spoon. Then we’ll create the bowl of the spoon with a traditional spoon carving hook knife, finishing up with carving the rest of your spoon with purpose made carving knife.

3 spoons

The final look and finish will be entirely up to you – leave it with a rustic knife finish for a real home crafted look, use a cabinet scraper to smooth out the knife marks. Or go all the way and sand out all the knife marks to achieve a perfectly smooth spoon.

You’ll be able to take the spoon away and we’ll have materials and tools available for purchase if you want to make more at home or on the ferry home.

Keep on whittling!
