Learning situations in Sloyd. The aim of this presentation is to discuss how the interaction between students within the teacher education, teachers and the environment are involved in learning situations to develop dexterity and skills within Sloyd [Slöjd]. During the students' education to become teachers for the school subject Sloyd time in workshops are included to practice skills and be knowledgeable in the crafting of sloyd objects. To be able to teach as an educated teacher within sloyd it is important to have the experience of gradually learning how to learn to craft in sloyd. Video Recorded empirical data is collected during a two-day workshop in turning at a teacher education programme. The recorded crafts activities are characterized by the students’ coordination of their activities by the use of both verbal and non-verbal communication. It is of interest to explore how learning processes are formed by instructions and impressions when the students develop their knowledge and skills. We would like to discuss how knowledge is formed in interaction with people and the environment when students learn how to shape the craft objects by using tools and materials. What is it that makes a person alternate between working by oneself or receiving help from others? How are students’ learning processes developed through conversations and other forms of communication (body language, gestures, facial expressions, actions, etc.) to make them more knowledgeable in their craft, skillful and proficient in the work of forming a crafted artefact? How are instructions and impressions used during the learning process?
