SPOONFEST is a gathering of everyone interested in spooncarving for a weekends fun, sharing and inspiration. It started out as a sort of pipe dream of getting all our favourite carvers together to talk spoons and carve together, it seems to have taken off into a genuine international event with carvers, collectors, beginners and fellow obsessives from Sweden, USA, Holland and the UK coming so far. Most of the big names of the green woodworking world will be there from Jogge Sundqvist and Mike Abbott to Fritiof Runhall and JanHarm ter Brugge. There will be a gallery with Norman Steven’s incredible collection of spoons shown for the first time outside the USA along with historical spoons and an instant gallery of spoons made by spoonfest attendees. There has never been an event where so many talented spooncarvers have come together and we are really looking forward to it. Ticket prices are cheap at just £40 for the weekend including free camping on site. Tickets are more than half sold out already so if you want to make sure you are at this inspirational event book soon. Full details at the spoonfest site here
