While the techniques used in spoon carving are relatively simple and can be used to create a range of handmade implements, from a cooking spoon to a coffee scoop, the effects of this craft are profound. The act of whittling, peeling and planning wood is absorbing and meditative; minutes turn into hours while the spoon carver becomes lost in the making process and surrenders to the joy of slow making, thinking and living.
