Spoon Carving isn't just a fun way to pass time, it's a wonderful way to connect with your own talented hands and make something useful for your kitchen! Come learn the tricks of the trade from our seasoned spoon carver, Kent Young--a masterful and patient teacher. All participants will leave with the spoon they carved.

Kent Young is a wood carver, but more specifically a spoon carver. He’s been doing this old and mostly forgotten craft for the last 35 years! An artist living in a remote part of New Hampshire taught him the craft of spoon making, and he’s never stopped. Spoons are old tools, predating forks by thousands of years. Kent feels that spoon carving is physical and mental, and the required focus has a Zen like quality to it. Using only hand tools he can carve anywhere… Kent is the owner and operator of Young Spoons, where spoons are functional art and made to be used everyday. A good wooden spoon is essential to a well equipped kitchen, and to this end, his favorite wood to carve is cherry. It holds up well to kitchen use, wears well, and turns an aged brown like a good leather.  Kent’s spoons are a joy to reach for in your kitchen.
