With us it's included in your ticket price.  It's a neat little art - good for mindfulness - and you have a spoon to take home!  We have 18 hours of spoon carving sessions and 60 places (adults only 16+).   To avoid disappointment - please browse the timetable and book ahead with either Dave of The Coppice Plot or Buzzard Chris (BCB on the Timetable in the BUSHCRAFT sections each day).  You will need you Booking or Ticket Number to confirm your place.  We have 60 places - and it's first come first serve.  Both Dave and Chris will save places for those with Tickets - so please include your ticket number/booking reference on your email together with your preferred Timeslot.
