The wood craft

The wood craft

Through all times man has used materials from his local environments to produce what is needed in daily life.

The Swedish word slöjd can be derived from the Old Norse word slug, meaning ingenious, clever or shrewd. It describes the craftsman’s cleverness when it comes to utilizing resources from local environment.

Traditional slöjd is made with straightforward methods and simple tools. The craftsman often uses green wood since it is easier to work than seasoned wood.  Part of the fascination in slöjd   comes from participating in the whole process, from harvesting the materials to using the bowl, box or spoon you made.
