In The Handwork Initiative’s program, the aim is to empower your child through craft. It’s not about creating the next generation of craftspeople, but nurturing qualities that will serve them well throughout their lives.
Like music and art, handwork enriches our lives, building confidence in ourselves and enhancing our ability to engage with the world around us.
At camp, children are in a self-paced environment where they are guided through a series of thoughtfully selected wooden build models. They receive training in the proper use of real hand tools such as carving knives, hand planes, and pull saws. The program has historic roots, drawing inspiration from the Swedish method known as Educational Slöjd, developed in the late 1800s and still practiced in many parts of Scandinavia today.

Kids will have the opportunity to build things such as a wand, pencil sharpener, plant label, puzzle, balance board, dreidel top, knitting needles, picture/book shelf, and more!
