Birch, Bark & Antler: Decorative Handles for the Nordic Kitchen
Stacked handle flatware is classic aesthetic of the Nordic kitchen. From cheese planes to spatulas, serving spoons to filet knives, the handles of these items are a reflection of three basic Scandinavian natural materials – birch wood, stacked birch bark and reindeer antler. Starting with these essential materials, learn to shape and layer the handles, and then fasten to the Nordic metalware provided by the instructor. From there, design and shape a custom fit handle using traditional carving techniques, then sand to a smooth, finished product.
You’ll have stories to tell the next time you cut, slice or serve with your stacked handle flatware. Materials fee covers the cost of the Nordic crafted metalware.
