Spoon Carving with Joġġe Sundqvist (Tues to Sat) September 6-10, 2022

Carving finely made eating and cooking spoons is a rich tradition going back a thousand years in Scandinavia. These elegant and useful objects are either painted with oil-based colors or adorned with decorative chip carvings. Jögge learned this technique from his father, Wille, when he was a young boy and today, he teaches those techniques around the world. Spoon carving involves a surprising level of hidden engineering and understanding of wood to make a delicate, graceful, strong and useful spoon–one that will grow even more beautiful with years of use. Wooden spoons derive their stability from the natural bends in crooks in order to follow the fibers. There are many wonderful hand grips to learn, using forgotten muscles, and always employing safety stops. Jögge will discuss stylistic elements in the functional design, the natural properties of the wood, production process, special knife grasps and sharpening of the tools. MASW is honored and thrilled to have Jögge back.
