On Friday-Saturday 22-23 May from 11am to 5pm, Sätergläntan’s students at the programme Arts and Crafts – Form and Culture with specialisations in blacksmithing, sewing, weaving and wood with individual and joint projects as well as showing clothes made on Friday 12 noon, 2pm and 4pm and on Saturday at 2pm and 4pm.
Sensation and feeling of materials and crafts where the hands are in the focus is this year’s theme for the spring exhibition at Sätergläntan. The individual experience of a craft, the craftsman’s design and choices that are made throughout the creative process. The students show the process from thought and idea, through sketches and samples to the end result.
The exhibition is inaugurated by Eva Zetterberg, former Ambassador of Sweden to Chile and Peru, on Friday 22 May at 12 noon. The spring exhibition shows items and objects that have been made by our students of blacksmithing, wood and weaving while the sewing students put on a show with clothes that they have made throughout the academic year.
”Among the year’s projects are the reconstructed jackets based on originals from the 1820s-40s, locks forged according to an original from the 17th century, to modern interpretations of today’s Istanbul with its mix of East and West that the year 2 students got to experience during their study trip there after the New Year,” tells Renée Rudebrant, principal and CEO of Sätergläntan. ”The students are offering a wide and deep knowledge of tools and materials in their final projects, such as pick up weaving (opphämta), forged helmets and masks, paddles in wood and shibori-fyed kimono, just to name a few of their exciting projects.”

Sätergläntan is an institute and meeting place for anyone interested in crafts. We work to promote the idea that crafts and sloyd should have a natural place in everyone’s daily life.
We offer full-time education programmes in arts and crafts – form and culture of three years. Students choose one of five streams: blacksmithing, wood, sewing, weaving and special craft techniques. The education programmes of Sätergläntan are under supervision of the Swedish National Agency for Higher Vocational Education. All programmes and courses are mainly taught in Swedish.
Sätergläntan arranges a number of short education programmes for professional craftspeople as well as those with a hobby interest in crafts and sloyd. They run over 1 week on campus or as distance learning programmes of 5 or 10 week’s teaching over 6 or 12 months with regular meet-ups with teachers and fellow students. We also cooperate with various partners in order to offer education programmes that can complement or provide knowledge of a particular craft for organisations, businesses and other education providers.
Sätergläntan is a driving force in the work to preserve while at the same time develop knowledge of and skills in crafts and sloyd. Our education programmes combine a genuine knowledge of the materials, techniques and tools that were used historically within crafts and sloyd while we apply them in a modern context with a bold playfulness. Collaboration between practicioners of different crafts, entrepreneurship and product development also play an important role in our education programmes.
Sätergläntan engages skillful and experienced craftspeople, designers and artists, as well as other proficient people involved in creative activities, such as teachers, lecturers and inspirers.
Sätergläntans butik (Sätergläntan’s shop) offers literature, materials, tools and equipment for anyone interested in doing crafts. We also carry carefully selected items from some of Sweden’s foremost crafters.
Sätergläntan is situated in Insjön, Dalarna, Sweden.
