Nottingham Spoon Club (Spoon Moot)

Every Friday evening we come together to carve out a spoon shaped piece of peace. Spoons are where it starts but we might end up anywhere! All are welcome, whatever shape you're in you'll fit. 6-8pm, £5 donation to keep the space going, tea flowing, and trees growing. Expect tea, coffee, something sweet and maybe even some music to help the evening along. Please bring your own tools and wood if you have them, or share what's here. Spoon Moot is a social space for whittling away at things, we all learn from each other, this is not a class or workshop... If you don't know which end of the axe is the sharp one, then book a learning session with us and sharpen up your skills first.

Seattle Spoon Club

Seattle, WA
The Seattle Spoon Club is a group of dedicated spoon enthusiasts who meet at the Pratt Fine Arts Center once a month in Seattle, WA. The club began in January 2019 as a way for the spoon carving community to connect with each other, and the group has continued to grow since then. The Pratt Fine Arts Center wood shop has provided a great space for many of those in the club to get started in spoon carving through classes offered by the school. The mission of the spoon club is to allow a community where people feel welcome and safe to be who they are, and is eager to share the craft and passion with all who wish to be a part of the group. There is a great effort to provide green wood for anyone that participates, and the club holds demos of various sorts, with lots of discussion on tools and ad-hoc instruction. Beginners and novices oftentimes join more experienced carvers, like our patron saint, Tom Henscheid, with his 40 years experience, incredible depth and breadth of knowledge, and unbounded enthusiasm for instruction. The spoon club is intent on creating a more inclusive and diverse woodworking community in the Pacific Northwest.

There are currently 2 daily regularly scheduled sessions - 6am GMT and 6am EST US. Sessions typically last anywhere from 1 to 4 hours (longer on weekends).
