Wood  (6)

Hand on wood

Wood is one of the finest and most versatile sustainable raw materials on earth and, as such, can look back on thousands of years of tradition. There has always been plenty of wood on the farm and it was therefore a fixture of everyday life. The step up from the skilled handling of wood to art is not a great one. Rural artisans demonstrate how creative handcrafts with wood can be: they create genuine words of art by wood turning, carving and wicker working.

Wool  (1)

Wonderful wool

Our grandmothers knew about the wonders of wool. Wool fibres keep you warm, regulate temperature and can absorb moisture and repel surface water at the same time. Sheep have always lived on farms to provide wool and meat. Their wool is sheared, carded, spun into yard and used for knitting, weaving or fulling. Felting, on the other hand, only requires carded wool. The resulting masterpieces show how wool can be both a natural and refined companion.

Egg art

For centuries, symbolic significance has been attached to eggs in many cultures like no other foodstuff. It is seen as the emblem of new life and fertility. Whether the eggs comes from hens, geese or ducks, there is life within its shell. The shell itself has long been intricately decorated: when tastefully dyed and engraved by farmers’ hands, eggs turn into cheery ambassadors for the farming community.
