Experience the art of wooden spoon carving firsthand in our woodworking workshop led by artist Chris Pothof. Located in the heart of Sydney's vibrant inner west at Made By Me Workshop in St Peters, join us for an immersive Introduction to Wood Carving.
Learn the essentials of crafting a wooden cooking spoon from a prepared spoon blank. Chris will guide you through the safe and efficient use of wood carving knives and tools, along with tips for sourcing and processing greenwood.
Discover the simplicity and accessibility of spoon carving, offering not just a practical outcome, but a journey into mindfulness, community, and problem-solving.
Suitable for ages 12 and over, no prior experience is necessary. All tools and materials will be provided but if you already have your own tools, we recommend bringing them along.
For your safety, we require all participants to wear fully enclosed shoes and clothing that covers the legs. Children under the age of 15 must be accompanied by a participating adult and consent to their use of sharp tools.
At Made By Me Workshop, we believe craft is as much about creativity as it is about connection. In our workshops, you have the opportunity to meet new friends, share stories, and enjoy some time for yourself. Coffee and tea making facilities are available, along with snacks to sustain you through the workshop. If you prefer barista-made coffee, you can grab one from Aslan Cafe, just a short stroll away.

In 2016 Chris AKA the Wood Tamer decided to make an oak screen for the family home. The screen turned out great so now he needed a new project. With the leftover timber Chris thought he'd make some salad servers for his wife as a gift. Using some borrowed chisels and rudimentary skills he went searching on youtube for some tips. The salad servers were a hit but by then Chris had discovered green woodworking. Carving green wood proved much more satisfying than trying to work the hardwood of his initial effort. Many more attempts, tutorials, courses and books later and Chris is still hooked.

As Chris learnt more, he found the tools and materials for carving hard to source, many were overseas and there was often a waitlist. One evening sharing a wine with his wife they discussed his frustration. What if we could bring all the tools and resources for spoon carving into one location they thought? And from there Wood Tamer was born.

Creating balance with creativity & connection

Made by Me Workshop is about helping people to connect with their "inner creative" and have some fun while making beautiful things from quality materials in our friendly & vibrant studio space in the heart of the inner west!
Established in 2017 after Rebecca Doyle decided to take a career break and chose to revisit her childhood love for arts & crafts. Rebecca grew up in a large family where money was tight, after school activities where mostly homegrown and usually involved a sheet of cardboard, a glue stick and some glitter! It is probably no surprise to learn that Rebecca followed a creative path to study Fashion & Textile Design at University!
After a few more decades (than Rebecca will publicly admit to) and a long and varied career in the fashion industry, Rebecca wanted to get back to creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind objects - Made By Me Workshop is the result of where this path led.
Rebecca loves that moment of pride that comes over each participant's face when they look at what they have created and say to themselves "Wow - I made this & I love it!"
Made by Me Workshop run a variety of creative workshops, hen’s parties, private parties and corporate events from their warehouse space in St Peters including Resin Art, Resin Jewellery & Mould Making, Soap Making, Terrazzo Homewares, Punch Needle, Macrame and many more.
