Looking to learn how to carve with an axe at practical Melbourne workshops?
Join Eli Beke of Wedge and Edge and learn the basics of greenwood carving to craft your very own spatula!
In this beginner's workshop, we will start with a billet of timber that we will shape with an axe, removing larger chips and then refining the shape by making smaller and smaller chips using a Sloyd knife and a hook knife.
You will also learn how to coax the spatula from the timber.
By the end of this workshop, you will have your own hand-carved spatula ready to take home and use in the kitchen!

Eli Beke makes his work to be compelling and comfortable; in its form to the eye, practicable in use as touched by a hand and to enrich the life of whomsoever it may belong to.
Influenced by Swedish and Japanese carved household objects, a self-taught Craftsman, Beke works mainly in wood and metals; combining wood carving, modern metal fabrication and timber joinery techniques.
Beke’s previous work as an electrical engineer gives him a practicable lens into creating beautiful and functional objects, and his extensive travels by bicycle across Asia in his 20's left a lasting impact on his craft.
