In spring of 2009 I participated in a two day workshop under the tutelage of David Western
This was an introduction to art form with an interesting history .Since then I have carved several more spoons as gifts the first being for my lovely wife Dian. I prefer to use local native woods Red Alder and Maple having found that Yellow Cedar is too soft and does not hold detail well.
I have committed to doing one each for our 3 daughters. They eachl chose the same pattern Modern Maple Leavesby David Western i’ve not started one you because it is a very difficult one :(O
