spoons2Tutor: Travelling craftsman Dan Lawrence uses hand tools to create kaleidoscopic sensory bliss.

Dan is an experienced instructor of five years and has been teaching at International Spoonfest for two years now. Dan uses traditional hand tools and locally sourced greenwood to create a range of beautiful and functional wooden-ware (from wooden spoons, bowls and others woodland wonders). He likes to think of his work as ‘small functional sculptures’ inspired by Scandinavian techniques. All his work is skillfully finished with a knife, without use of sandpaper. 
There will be maximum 6 participants and places must be booked in advance.
