Julian (a.k.a Littlebear Slojd) is a certified wooden spoon carving tragic. He also has a bachelors degree in history, with research into traditional spoon carving culture in Wales.
Joining together the craft of spoon carving and the study of material culture history is his way to rediscover the role of the wooden spoon in the household. Julian uses his spoons every day and encourages others to make functional objects and do the same.
Julian sells his hand carved wooden spoons and treen, as well as teaching spooncarving lessons and workshops, and offering a specialist sharpening service for greenwoodworkers.
