SpoonMoot- A Very Short History
In October 2019 ORSN and Mount Wolfe Spoon Club hosted the 1st Ontario Spoon Moot (see below). Twenty-five carvers new and old bought slojd and hook knife, carving axe and spoon mule to Mount Wolfe Farm in Caledon in Southern Ontario, and a good time was had by all! As far as we are aware this was the first official large gathering of Spoon Carvers in the province, following in the woodchips of the UK's Spoonfest, Minnesota's Spoon Gathering and Australia's SpoonJam.
Things weren't looking so good in 2020 because of COVID but we wanted to keep the fire alive, so a few brave souls practiced a very safe and soically distanced Moot on October 34th 2020. Due to technical difficulties our first SpoonZoot didn't go ahead.
