Goblets with Wooden Tom

About the Event
In this two day course you will learn how to make a wooden goblet from log to finished item.
We will look at how to choose the right wood for goblets and then carve all the components. Parts will then be dried overnight in a kiln.
You will mortice and tenon the components together creating a super strong joint. Finally you will do all your finishing cuts. You will then learn about using chalk paint to add some colour and finally oil.
About Woodent Tom: As a way of avoiding the streets of Northern England growing up I found myself at every opportunity escaping the urban jungle and heading for the woods. I would make camps and whittle sticks with borrowed tools from my carpenter grandfather. This all undoubtedly was the start of my addiction! Ever since, I sought to expand my knowledge by learning from experts in the field but mainly from lots and lots of mistakes! In 2010 a job brought me to the Scottish Highlands working with the forestry commission where i fell in love with the Cairngorms. One of the defining features in this area are the clean white stems of the Birch trees, and it is with these trees i have my closest connection with carving. I use the wood for making various kitchen utensils although my main passion is making drinking vessels.
