Teaching artist and wood worker Kate Hawes will discuss early American furniture making, inspired by the carved works on view, and teach the fundamentals of woodworking in this spoon carving workshop. Participants will develop a spoon design and use hand tools to carve and shape their own handmade spoon. All materials are provided, and no prior experience is necessary. The program is limited to 12 individuals.  Kate Hawes has been working with wood for over 25 years. Her work has ranged from traditional custom furniture pieces to inventive sculptural forms. Hawes is a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College and the North Bennet Street School, where she studied cabinet and furniture making. She co-founded and ran a cooperative wood shop in Brooklyn, NY, from 2001-2012. She taught for several years at the Craft Students League in New York City, and currently teaches woodworking classes at Makeville Studio in Brooklyn, NY. She divides her time between teaching in the city and working in her wood shop in the Catskill mountains. Image: Kate Hawes, Carved Bowl. Photo courtesy of the artist.
