Who wants to go to Spoonfest?

January 12, 20146 Comments

While at Woodworking in America 2013 I attended a Peter Follansbee class on carved spoons. It was completely unlike any of the previous topics I’ve seen at past WIAs and I have to admit…I think I want to try it out sometime.

During the class a few folks had mentioned something called “Spoonfest“. I chortled a little thinking about it, but after seeing this video highlighting Spoonfest 2013…I think I might want to attend.

I still don’t know if it’s something I’d be able to swing in 2014, but if you were interested or actually going I’d love to hear about it.

    Hi,

    Im extremely interested in learning how to carve wooden spoons. I just don’t know how to get started. I watched the video and I would like to go.

      I though Peter mentioned there was some spoon related classes and events here in the States also…guess it’s time to do some searching.

    Please don’t forget. The the first weekend in June in Milan Mn. This is the date of the annual Spoon Gathering’. I think this will be the 6th year in Milan. The first year we had less then 10 spoon carvers and last year we had close to 100. It starts Friday evening and ends Sunday when the last person leaves. If your lucky you will meet Jarod, Dell, Yuri, Fred, Tom, and maybe even Jim. This is the place to be in June to carve spoons in the US. You will see seasoned experts and first timers carving together, eating together, camping together, and lets not forget sharing an adult beverage together.
