Sloyd

Manufacturing objects and processing materials with the help of tools is a way for human beings to think and express themselves. Sloyding is a form of creativity which implies finding concrete solutions within a crafts tradition and design based on needs in various situations.


Sloyd implies manual and intellectual work linked together which develop creativity and reinforce confidence in one’s ability to cope with tasks in one’s daily life. These abilities are significant for the development of both the individual and the community.
