In the Basic Course we learn to use a carving knife. We make some two dimensional carvings such as leaves, and simple three dimensional flowers from cucumber, carrot, apple, and/or rutabaga. Teaching language is Finnish, but it can be supported in English.

Student can borrow a carving knife in a course, or they can buy one. The basic course takes 3 hours. Raw material is included in the course. One course can take 5-7 students.
Fruit Garden has Basic Courses in its own premises (Bulevardi 48 A 24, Helsinki). Course fee is 25 euros per person (inc alv).
Group courses in a customer’s premises have recently become quite popular. The price for a course is 170 e/group (inc alv). The teacher brings tools and material and they can be used without charge.
