*** Note that this workshop will be happening at our NEW studio location: 10368 San Pablo in EL CERRITO ***

There is nothing like the feeling of using a spoon you made yourself. The simple acts of stirring tea or cooking food become mindful, elevated experiences. In this class learn the process of designing, carving, and finishing techniques. Windy will demo hands-on use of a gouge, Japanese handsaw, Shinto rasp, chisel & mallet, sanding materials and more to create a one-of-a-kind wooden spoon. 

This class is more involved than “rocking chair whittling,” so come prepared to work hard in clothes that can take a little sawdust! You will leave the workshop with your beautiful handmade spoon, a jar of Windy’s homemade organic wood butter, detailed instructions pamphlet, and a supplies/resources list. 

Light snacks and beverages will be provided, however, please bring a bagged lunch due to the length of the workshop. 

Windy Chien, recovering techie and ex-record shop owner, has developed a singular process for carving her Fat Bottomed Girls line of spoons. Using Japanese and Swiss hand tools, she ergonomically designs the spoons to feel good in the hand and be used daily. While many methods for spoon carving exist, Windy’s style is accessible to non-professionals without access to a wood shop and requires only a small amount of space and tools.
