This weekend you’re all invited to visit the students´ exhibition at Skals Håndarbejdsskole in Denmark. Skals Håndarbejdsskole is a boarding school of needlecraft. The school is known for utilizing classical needlework techniques, good craft and excellent quality, but it’s also at the forefront when it comes to being innovative within the textile crafts.
Skals Håndarbejdsskole has 3 main classes: Clothing, Weaving and Embroidery where high professional standards combined with generation of ideas and drawing encourage students to develop their own creative skills.
Like all Danish Folk High Schools Skals is subsidised by the Danish state. In other words you get board, lodging and tutoring at a reasonable price. However, at Danish folk high school there’s always included elements of general education. That is the reason why history, literature, story-telling, art and cultural history are natural parts of the daily tutoring. And the reason why dialogue and socializing is regarded an important part of the students` stay.
Every year the school arranges a large student exhibition. The exhibition will take place on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 June, both days from 9:00 to 17:00. I plan to go – I hope to see some of you too!
