Do you want to use your hands for creative and practical work? Choose wooden crafts at Vestjyllandshøjskole and find your inner craftsman!
We make skewers, lubricants, wooden cakes, bowls, cups, cutting boards, and more based on aesthetic and functional design. In addition, we also explore knife and axe skills as well as wood-turning machines.
We work primarily with fresh wood, also called green lash. We complete entire projects, from roughing the bare stem to applying a beautiful finish. We will work with tools such as an axe, knife, ribbon knife, knife blade, grinding machine, lathe, sandpaper, and oil. Besides, there will be an opportunity to work with leather and bark.
Fundamental technology, material knowledge, and hands-on tool usage are essential to "Woodcraft."
Classes consist of a combination of established and self-driven assignments, with both individual and collective learning.
Each lesson will include a skill, such as grinding, design, leather, homemade paint, and carving. Everyone is welcome regardless of skill level.
