Coming up: Knifemaking Workshop – Out on the Land, August 4-7

■ Knifemaking ■ Nature connection through material study ■ Handicraft skill development ■ Work with wood, antler, bone, bark, leather, and more ■ Outdoor living craft experience ■ Community outdoor living
4 – 7 August 2024, Edsåsdalen, Jämtland, Sweden

Welcome to join us and create your own knife and sheath. From August 4 – 7 we will be gathering to familiarize with a variety of natural materials, learn the process of creating your own knife with your personal choice of natural materials and patterns, try different techniques, and take home your own knife and skills that will accompany you for the rest of your life.

The act of crafting with natural materials tends to be a very connecting and empowering one. To craft such things that can serve many other of your endeavors, journeys, and undertakings allows for an even deeper connection both to the crafting process as well as to the use and the ‘thing’ created and owned.

We will set up camp out on the land. Gathered around the fire, this will be our base for living, cooking, gathering, sleeping, and most of all: crafting. We will be staying in tents and cook over the fire.
From our base-camp there is plenty exploration and adventuring to do, and the crafting process will allow for self- and collectively chosen breaks.
