What is spoon carving
Course objective: Each participant carves a wooden spoon and plate using simple tools such as an ax, carving knife and gouge.
Course content: The participants learn to use carving tools, to split fresh wood and to work out the rough spoon shape from the split pieces with an ax. It explains what shape a spoon should have in order to be fit for purpose and how to take into account the characteristics of the wood (knots, grain, etc.). Then the spoon is finished with the carving knife and the cavity is carved out with the gouge or a round knife. The finished spoon can be decorated with various methods (carving, coloring with milk colors, etc.). After that, the already practiced participants can make a plate, a wooden drinking vessel (Kuksa) or a more complicated, larger spoon (e.g. a ladle).
Historical background: Wooden spoons or wooden plates are documented in very many epochs (e.g. Neolithic, Bronze Age and ancient finds), but wood is only preserved under very specific circumstances, which usually makes these finds unusual and rare. However, we can assume that wooden cutlery was part of the everyday inventory of people in most cultures during prehistoric and historical times. It is only in our modern times that the natural and renewable raw material wood has been almost completely displaced in the kitchen by metal, ceramics or plastic. The forms we use today, however, look back on millennia of development history, which will be dealt with during the course as part of a short theoretical part on the basis of finds mentioned as examples.
