SATURDAY 25 & SUNDAY 26 NOVEMBER 2017 | PAMBULA NSW | SOLD OUT
Spoon Jam 2017 is a little festival dedicated to the traditional and beautiful art of hand carved wooden spoons. Set at the beautiful Panboola Wetlands Heritage Project in Pambula on the far south coast of New South Wales and only a two minute drive to laid back Pambula Beach, it'll be a weekend of spoony meditation and chilled conversations with a bunch of awesome spoonerds!
LAST YEAR'S JAM
We had a blast! 20 people got together for two days of spoon carving marvellousness, and oh what a pile a shavings we made! Here are some pics from last year's Jam.
This year, South Coast Holiday Parks in Pambula Village are providing a three night camping package for Spoon Jam participants. The park is only a block away from the Spoon Jam site, so it's and easy walk to all the spoony action. It is also walking distance into Pambula where there are shops, cafes and a wonderful bakery.
Facilities available at the park include a camp kitchen, toilets, showers etc. and the staff will set up a communal camp fire area for Spoon Jammers. The package includes Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights for up to 2 adults, and children are free. Extra days or people can be booked directly with the park on 02 6495 6708. Please let the park know you're part of the Spoon Jam crowd.
Prices for the three night package are:
Unpowered site - $68 for 3 nights
Powered site - $84 for 3 nights
If you would like to book the camping package, just select the powered or unpowered option after you have hit the green 'Register Now' button on the booking page. Please email us with the number of adults and children, and your phone number when on site so we can pass this onto the park owners for prepping the site. Also, if you are bringing a camper van or caravan please let us know. Thank you!
tool up with a mora package
Another newy for this year is a special priced tool package that you can buy when booking your ticket. It comprises the Mora 120 straight sloyd knife, and the Mora 164 hook knife both pictured above. These are great Swedish made tools that will get you on your whittling way. The package costs $98, and is only available when booking your Spoon Jam ticket. Just select the tool package option after you have clicked the green 'Register Now' button on the Spoon Jam booking page. They will be available for picking up at the Jam, or if you want them sooner just get in touch.
SPOON JAM IS SOCIAL SPOONERY!
Spoon Jam is a great opportunity for sitting in the sun and yakking with other spoonerds. There's space for 40 people at the festival (we did say it was little!) and there's something about carving spoons that breaks down our little human barriers to bring about conversation and laughter. We'll also meet at Pambula Beach on Saturday evening for a beer and local fish & chips (and ice cream if you're busting to use your freshly carved spoon). Social spoonery is the bees knees!
finding spoon jam
Spoon Jam is at the Panboola Wetlands Heritage Project in Pambula NSW, about half way between Sydney and Melbourne and three hours from Canberra. We're on the beautiful Sapphire Coast and there are stacks of hotels, campsites and Air BnB places around Pambula, Merimbula and Eden. There's also an airport in Merimbula (just a few minutes drive from the festival site) where REX Airlines fly in from Sydney and Melbourne, and Free Spirit Airlines fly in from Melbourne too.
