Knife-Sharpening Workshop @ Mount Paul Community Food Centre

Are you tired of dull knives? Come out and and hone your sharpening skills at this Kamloops Food Policy Council fun, hands-on workshop!

Lawrence Barichello will demonstrate and guide us through some basic principles of sharpening. He will also discuss how to flatten and maintain sharpening stones. We will have a number of different stones and tools to work with, so everyone can practice with a variety of equipment.

Bring along a couple of knives to work on, any stones you have, and if you can, a magnifying glass so you can get a really good look at the surfaces we’ll be working on!

  • The Kamloops Food Policy Council, based in Kamloops, BC Canada, is on the traditional, unceded territory of the Secwepemc people who nourished themselves and this land for millenia.

    This ancient gathering place, where the North and South Thompson Rivers meet is called T’kemlups in the Secwepemc language, Secwepemctsin. This land is called Secwepemculecw.

    Every month at our potlucks we speak a new Secwepemc word together. For December, the word is swucwt (swoo-kt) = snow.
