At $650 for 2 days? I like wooden spoon carving with green wood but don't plan on making +12 spoons/year. Nonetheless, it could be a fun class just to learn the techniques and Elia's shop location is near Hillsborough, NC but definitely out in the country.
Graywolf carved his first spoon a short time ago which turned out very nice.
