Sloyd Inspired Carving - Handcrafting Wooden Utensils with Will Burney

Featured Class:
Sloyd Inspired Carving - Handcrafting Wooden Utensils with Will Burney
September 28-29, 2019

“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.

And rather than serving as a "how to" guide, it is instead a biographical account of the life of a carpenter and sometimes writer whose life experiences encompassed a wide variety of housing types, 10 of which he discusses.
