 [This is not a class – it is a free monthly session]

Swing by the Duluth Folk School for a free opportunity to carve spoons with others in a warm, informal setting. The Duluth Folk School is making space available for people who would like to carve spoons with other folks.

There will not necessarily be experienced carvers on hand to help you, so if you need to do some problem solving, have questions answered, or see techniques demonstrated, you’ll need to do that outside of these sessions.

This is an informal time to work with your hands, gather in community, tell stories, and of course – carve spoons!


We are following CDC guidelines: Currently, masks are not required, but anyone who would like to is welcome to wear a mask. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID, please stay home.

You should bring…

Bring your own knives, bring your own spoon blanks, and whatever else you’ll need to carve spoons.

Skill Level

Any: from no prior experience to master carvers – all are welcome.

Best for Ages…

Effective spoon carving requires very sharp knives, so the age for this session is whatever age feels comfortable using these sorts of tools.


You are welcome to bring drinks or food from the Dovetail Cafe upstairs. There will be brooms/dustpans available: please clean the work area before leaving. If no one wants to bring the wood chips and shavings home, please leave them in a plastic bag, next to the regular garbage upstairs.


We are making our space available without charge. If you would like to support us, please leave a contribution in the bucket, or support us ONLINE. Thanks!
