Sammanfattning

Thinking through hands is not emphasised in school, as the focus is placed on educating the mind. However, our mind does not have access to the world without our senses, that allow for our whole interpretation of the world and what meanings are out there. Our hands are our interface to the world and body based knowledge is key also in our understanding of more abstract concepts and ideas. Additionally, our imagination and our embodied experiences of the world is needed in our interpretation of concepts as well as making ideas travel further than our bodies. The understanding of the person as a psycho-physical whole is now growing also in the general field of education. This paper shows three aspects of bodily sense making of craft practitioners and learners: bodily mimicking in skill learning, imagination and prediction of material behaviour and mental rotation. Through three cases, we discuss these topics and the connection of hand and mind in learning situations. We will then argue for the transferrable skills and abilities that may follow from material interaction that develop both intra-personal growth and self-management as well as the ability to imagine and predict material properties in multiple contexts.
