Carving Köksredskap: Breadboards, Butter Knives & Spoons
Create beautiful and useful things for your kitchen using simple hand tools and birch wood. Participants in this course will be introduced to the Swedish traditions of ‘köksredskap,' or the process of carving functional utensils, including butterknives, small spoons or bread boards. Students will start by splitting a green log, then will use classic hand tools to carve their desired project. Instruction will cover how to properly care for your creations so that they will be durable and functional for years to come. No experience necessary as we provide the tools, wood and direction. Students will leave with two to three hand carved projects that are reminiscent of yesteryear. No trips to Ikea here, just innovative designs following the folk art traditions of Sweden.
You will need the following tools for this class:
- carving knife with short blade (2" to 3")
- hatchet or axe
- eye protection
- carving hook or gouge
- some drawing paper
- (Items may be available for purchase @ North House School Store)
