Carve your own butter spreader from beautiful wood under the supervision of experienced wood carver Nick Vorstermans.

About this event

Learn to Sloyd and carve a butter spreader from beautiful wood under the supervision of experienced wood craftsman Nick Vorstermans. Sloyd is a word derived from the Swedish word Slöjd meaning handiwork or crafts.

You'll cover the basics of sharpening your carving tools and how to use them safely to create a beautiful butter spreader.

All materials and tools are provided.

Craftsperson Nick Vorstermans of Studio Critical focuses his practice on using locally and sustainably sourced materials. Nick received our very special Exhibitor Award at this year’s Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair. Our Artistic Director Florence awarded him the award for his amazing craftsmanship and sensitivity shown towards the materials he uses. “Craft is not just the art of making beautiful, carefully made objects, craft is a form of protest. A protest against the mass produced, mass consumer products that are clogging our landfills and whose processes are ruining our environment. By engaging with craft we are attempting to show people that it is possible to make usable, beautiful objects from truly renewable and sustainable resources. Craft demands that the maker respects their material and process in a human centred way."

This workshop is suitable of over 16 years only.
