We've been busy here at Spoon Camp.
The sun has been shining and we've had a steady stream of wonderful students.
We will be striking camp the week after next when we'll be moving up to Scotland and the Scottish Crannog Centre.
I will be available for spoon carving courses at the Crannog on the 29th 30th 31st July 1st August and the 6th August. Contact the Crannog or email me at email@example.com to secure your place.
A one day spooncarving course will cost £80 per day.
See you there... J
