Becoming a full time Spoon Carver - Barn the Spoon

Becoming a full time Spoon Carver - Barn the Spoon

The journey from living in the woods, to making his living from carving wooden spoons.

The first of a Barnaby Carder (Barn the Spoon) double bill.
Barn is a spoon carver, co-organises spoonfest and is the author of several books including the excellent Spon.
In this episode Barn tells us about how he got into wood-working at a young age and later discovered the joys of working green wood. His journey has been unusual and is told with Barn's classic humour.

Spoon Man

Barn has been a woodwork obsessive for over 20 years. 8 years ago he decided spoons were his thing and dedicated his life to them. Each spoon is a joyous celebration of functional sculpture. In recent years Barn has spent more time sharing his passion through teaching at The Green Wood Guild.
