Detailed Description

Slöyd Inspired Carving - Handcrafting Wooden Utensils with Will Burney
Saturday & Sunday, September 28 & 29, 2019 from 09:00am to 4:00pm
Class Size: 8
Hands-On Workshop

The resurgence of handicraft work in the US has been getting a boost lately from the generation of "makers" that are building just about everything under the sun with their hands (and using social media to share their delight in doing so). While the idea of handicraft education fell out of favor in the US in the early 1900’s, “Sloyd” (Slöjd), a method of educating students in the ways of handicraft, is still an integral part of citizenry education in many Nordic countries.
Come give yourself a “Sloyd” weekend, unplugging from your smart phone for a spell and put your wise, text savvy hands busy learning to craft “in analog” for making simple, useful (and with a little practice) “elegant” wooden utensils. Master spoon carver Will Burney will guide you in the ways of Sloyd, teaching you to whittle and carve wood with basic tools.
You may discover a relaxing hobby that stays with you for a lifetime, or even become a prolific carver and start selling carved utensils on Etsy! Regardless, you’ll come to see wood as a creative and aesthetic material, that with a little coaxing using a few simple tools, can help satiate the human desire to form, create and “make” something useful and pleasing to the eye and hand.

Required tools for the class: Morakniv Wood Carving Set
