Green Woodwork at Miserden

Spoon Carving: An introduction to Green Woodwork Carving - We are delighted to have teamed up with Rosie Mockford to bring Spoon Carving workshops to Miserden. Rosie is a nurse and green woodworker and a member of the Heritage Crafts Association and the Association of Pole Lathe Turners & Green Woodworkers. Her passion is sharing the various benefits of nature through teaching green woodworking skills.

Using green wood (recently cut wood, which is easier to work with) from the estate, Rosie will teach safe and efficient techniques using nothing but hand tools - an axe, “Scandinavian grind” knife and a hooked knife. By learning this heritage skill, you will be able to make your very own spatula or Swedish style butter knife in just a few hours and if you wish to progress rather than finesse, make a spoon too. There is nothing much more satisfying than creating something special you can enjoy using each day. You will also have the techniques needed to practise this enjoyable skill at home.
