Everyday Slöjd for the Kitchen

Course Overview

Surround yourself and your home with simple, handmade, utilitarian objects that get used everyday. This course is about making the wooden items that you live with, and hand carving and painting the surface details that you may touch on a daily basis. This course is focused on the kitchen, and possible projects include cooking paddles and spatulas, cutting and serving boards, small racks and organizers. Many examples will be shared and available, so students can choose to focus on one special thing or on several varied objects. All will be made by hand and with care, emphasizing their unique character and tactile qualities. We will use hand tools and traditional methods for the carving and construction and non-toxic milk paint for the decoration.
