Broad View of Craftsmanship
During our Craft Days, weekends from 2 to 17 September, the Broad View of Craftsmanship (Bred blick på hantverk) exhibition will be on display in the Bredablick Tower. Built in 1876, this was Skansen’s first building and is not normally open to the public. Here you can discover materials, skills and artistic expressions, and see what happens when different crafts and artistry come together.
With a focus on professionalism, we meet fourteen contemporary craftspeople and their individual ways of carrying the craft tradition into the future. Several of the participating artists will be on site to talk about their work and their processes.
Broad View of Craftsmanship is being held in association with the Swedish Craft and Small Business Association. The curator is Stefan ‘Trendstefan’ Nilsson.
