INSOMNIA COFFEE COMPANY
IN CANNON BEACH, OREGON
Join us for a cozy morning of spoon carving at Insomnia Coffee Co. in Cannon Beach, Oregon! This workshop has been strategically created by small home goods company Wood Intimations and was designed for the complete beginner carver. You will leave with your very own wooden coffee scoop!
(Good for ages 15+ with a parent)
Artisan couple Dani and Hy Boltz will lead students in hand carving their very own wooden coffee scoop from blank to finish (with 3 different styles for the student to choose from). The workshop begins with a mini heartfelt discussion on "presence" + a little historical background on the ancient art of spoon carving. Students will learn about the tools needed along with basic wood cutting and safety techniques.
These workshops are thoughtfully put together to create a relaxing, playful, unique experience for everyone attending. You will find simple, sweet, homemade touches scattered throughout the entire class and will leave feeling creatively inspired with your very own spoon in hand.
STUDENTS WILL BE SHOWN:
How to dig out the bowl of the spoon
How to whittle the handle and top of the spoon safely
How to sand and finish the spoon
A borrowed toolkit with a Flexcut carving knife, palm gouge (option to purchase)
Coffee scoop blank that you will transform into a functional piece of art
Beer token (may substitute kombucha or soda)
Well articulated verbal + written instruction
There are limited seats available. Please wear safe, toe covered shoes and try to arrive 10 minutes before class begins to get set up.
Come enjoy learning something new with your community while enjoying your favorite coffee or tea (maybe a pastry, too!).
