Textbook Of Swedish Home Sloyd by Anna Petersson Berg 1925
Anna Petersson Berg, instructor of Slöjd classes in Sweden during the early years of the 20th century, left her native country to bring the crafts of Swedish Holeseam and Fringing, finishing techniques for woven textiles, as well as traditional Swedish knitting styles, to the public schools of America.
Slöjd, as defined by Otto Salomon, the influential educator in the Slöjd theory of education, came to mean the formalized system of teaching crafts as part of an educational process.
The derivation of slöjd is slög, an early Scandinavian word for craft. As in most rural households, those of Sweden continued a craft tradition that included spinning, weaving and the making of a wide variety of small wooden items for personal use.
Gary Roberts, Toolemera Press publisher, returns to print classic books on early crafts, trades and industries. All titles are produced from the originals in his personal collection.
