Swedish Slöjd Knife with Birchbark Sheath

In the spoon carving and slöjd world, Jögge Sundqvist’s knives and sheaths are legendary. Anyone who has seen Jögge’s presentations and demonstrations is immediately drawn to his knives, knife boxes, tool handles and other fittings. His slöjd knives usually feature a highly-personalized handle, both in its form and its decoration. In this class, students will learn how to outfit a Moraknife blade with a hand-carved handle, which can then be carved and painted to suit.  For the sheath, birch bark is cut, folded and tied with birch roots.

Rhythm and slöjd

Slöjd och berättarföreställning Rhythm and Slöjd

Åsa Folkhögskola 16:00

Till musik av Chemical Brothers, Arvo Pärt och egen komponerad musik genomför jag en 45 min lång slöjdföreställning. I rytm till musiken slöjdar jag en burk ur ett färskt ämne samtidigt som en berättelse om slöjdprocesser växer fram. Här ryms tankar och historier om krokiga björkar, min fars hästtäljning och om mustig folkkonst. Allt till bilder av gammal och ny inspirerande slöjd.
