Barn Carder,

a/k/a Barn the Spoon

“No one in Britain knows more about crafting a spoon from green wood than Barn The Spoon” – The Guardian

 

Barn really does love spoons, he has been fully immersed in the Wood Culture Renaissance for a while now and there doesn't seem to be any letting up. The co-founder of Spoonfest, Barn is recognised for his unique depth of knowledge, and artisanal approach to production carving. He adapts simple, traditional designs to sell to a modern market. From living in the woods and peddling spoons on foot, to a high street shop in London and setting up The Green Wood Guild he keeps himself busy with fresh wood fibres and sharp tools.
