Working with Hands in a Post-Industrial Society with Jan Lütjohann

21 — 23 touko 2019

Working with Hands in a Post-Industrial Society with Jan Lütjohann is a session for up to 10 participants per day. You can reserve your free tickets, for one or several days, through our Eventbrite page.

 

About the Workshop

 

In this three day workshop, participants use traditional hand tools to apply the sculptural processes of dividing, shaping and connecting wood. Participants may come over the course of the three days or for a single day if required. Participants with all levels of knowledge about working with wood are welcome. The tools are suitable for anyone who can follow safety instructions in English.

 

We activate pre-industrial technology to get over established narratives of craft and take a critical approach to do-it-yourself.  To address our fragmented daily experience, we bring together hands-on work with social strategies of local collaboration, borrowing and working side by side in the same space.
