Join artisan couple Hy and Dani Boltz for an afternoon of spoon carving at Domke Farms, Hy and Dani’s residence. This workshop is designed for the complete beginner carver however can be enjoyed not matter the experience level.

Hy and Dani will lead students in hand carving their very own wooden spoon from blank to finish. The workshop begins with a mini heartfelt discussion on "presence" + a some historical background on the ancient art of spoon carving. Students will learn about the tools needed along with the basic wood cutting and safety techniques.
