Small spoon making workshop


Carving a spoon from in wood is an immersive and meditative process that produces a very personal object. KOITOYA is offering 2-hour workshops where students learn the basics of woodcarving and take home a special little spoon, perhaps as a gift for a new baby, or the perfect scoop for your favourite tea.

Koitoya will supply spokeshaves, knives, sanding papers.

Adults, kids over 12, beginners. Anyone with an interest in making with their hands.

About the teacher: Hiroshi Yamaguchi’s training as a woodworker started in 1994 at a private woodworking school in Japan called Shinrin-Takumi Juku, under Master Craftsman Osamu Shoji. For ten years he taught at the Gifu Academy of Forestry, Science and Culture. This gave him a strong professional experience of teaching. Hiroshi moved to Canberra in 2012 and established his studio, Koitoya Design/Make/Teach, in 2016.
