NEW! FREE Artist Demonstration: Introduction to Spoon Carving w/John P. Pietrella (Adults 17+)
 
This one-day demo is held on Saturday, Sept 8th from 11am-12pm for adults 17+. This is a FREE demonstration, registration is required.

Observe a unique art medium in action! Wooden Kitchen utensils are some of the oldest tools used by people in all cultures throughout history. These utensils include spoons, spatulas, strainers, forks and tongs. Wood is the ideal material for kitchen utensils since it is strong, natural, is an insulating material so does not conduct heat to the point at which it is held, and will not scratch non-stick cookware. Join us for an exciting look at this unique technique.

Don’t miss John’s hands-on Introduction to Spoon Carving class on Tuesdays, Oct 2nd - 30th from 6:30-9:30pm (space is limited).

BECOME A MEMBER AND SAVE ON CLASS TUITION!

Wooden Kitchen utensils are some of the oldest tools used by people in all cultures throughout history. These utensils include spoons, spatulas, strainers, forks and tongs. Wood is the ideal material for kitchen utensils since it is strong, natural, is an insulating material so it does not conduct heat to the point at which it is held, and will not scratch non-stick cookware. These tools can be easily made with just a few simple carving and shaping tools. This class will explain how to design your own spoons and other kitchen utensils and how to choose and prepare your materials. The class will introduce the student to gouges, rasps, files and scraping tools of all types and teach how to use them safely. Holding techniques, safety and finishing processes will be covered.

Each student will carve two items. All materials and tools will be provided. *However, students must wear/bring the following supplies to class:  
- Covered shoes must be worn, no sandals. 
- Safety glasses must be worn and should be brought to class by all students.
- Paper & pencil for notes and design sketching.
- Optional: students are welcome to bring any carving tools that they may own. All tools will be provided for this class.
