Spoon Carving Clubs

First rule of Spoon Club is that everybody should talk about their Spoon Club. Let's spread the word.

Calling all spoon carving clubs! We would like to feature your club here so we can connect budding spoon makers and keen carvers. Please contact us here with details of your spoon carving club, facebook page or group.

Please remember that these are social spoon carving clubs so expect to take along your own tools, wood etc and have fun carving with like minded people with opportunity to share knowledge and encourage each other along. If you are new to carving head on over to our resources page and speak to the club for guidance where to get lessons in your area if they don't offer them.

Perth Chop club was formed in the image of the Melbourne group that Julian was involved with before he relocated to Perth. They meet (irregularly) once a month at Julian's workshop in Rossmoyne, south of the river. All are welcome, provided you are comfortable carving in a self directed way, as chop club is first and foremost a social gathering.
