Fritiof Runhall is one of Sweden’s best spoon carvers though not as well known as he should be.


Fritiof Runhall demonstrates how he carves a wooden spoon in one hour at Spoonfest 2013.



Martin has been a dance band drummer, a grave digger and a trainee monk, but for the last 12 years he has been a full-time maker of baskets and spoons as well as teaching crafts part-time in a Christian Community for Adults with Learning Difficulties. At Spoonfest 2013, Martin delivered a short talk on ‘The Hermit Spoon Maker; St Peter Damian and the Contemplative Tradition of Making’ and teach sessions on carving caddy spoons and scoops. He also built a wonderful clay oven on site for bread and pizza.
