SPOONFEST is one of the highlights of my year. It is a wonderful gathering of 250 people from 11 countries all sharing the love of carved wooden spoons. That is on the surface but underneath there is something deeper, a shared enjoyment of a slightly silly, simple, meaningful life with chatting and music round the campfire, communal food cooked in a pizza oven made on site from clay dug nearby, free sharing of techniques ideas hopes and dreams. Maybe that’s just my rose tinted view but it feels pretty special to me. This wonderful video made by Sophie Standford seems to capture the spirit well.
