Wood Carving Digital Class
This listing is for video-only access to this workshop. Please note that materials are not included but the FULL workshop (video + curated materials) can be found here.
In this premium workshop we are exploring the art of wood carving, handcrafting artisan serveware that will become staples in our kitchen and home. Motoko Smith, of Leo in the Woods, inspires, educates and shares with us her thoughtful practice in design and woodworking. Following her techniques, we’ll create a knife, coffee scoop, large spatula, and kuksa out of a rich cherry wood. This rewarding and immersive workshop allows us to take a wooden blank and, with time and diligence in our craft, create custom home goods that we will enjoy for a lifetime.
Along with learning the fundamentals of woodworking and wood carving techniques, Motoko shares her expert tips derived from years of experience and countless hours of work. By the end of this workshop, Motoko will leave us feeling confident in our new skills, ready to experiment with future wood carving projects on our own.
In the kit that accompanies Motoko’s masterclass in wood carving, you’ll receive the tools and supplies to make four beautiful pieces of serveware: a knife, coffee scoop, large spatula and kuksa along with six custom wood carving patterns by Motoko herself.
