Intro to Spooncarving with Theresa Darmody

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

8 Jul 2021 Once Only Event

This is a hands-on workshop where participants will learn how to carve a functional spoon using just a few tools and make their own unique spoon to take home. Attendees will learn the art of knife and gouge techniques enabling them to carve safely. They will also become familiar with the direction of timber grain, and learn how to work with the grain to achieve beautiful results. This is an intimate capped class, in which attendees will get one-on-one assistance from Theresa.

Theresa Darmody relocated to Brisbane five years ago as a painter- seeking to include some sculptural pieces in an exhibition, she attended a carving workshop, which got her hooked on carving! Theresa’s paintbrushes and paints are now in storage and she finds herself carving every day. She enjoys making functional pieces such as spoons, combs and bowls as well as purely sculptural objects. She is fascinated by the form of the object and the nature of each piece of wood.
