Our apprentice Tom's degree project

Tom is studying at the Crafts Academy's two-year polytechnic education in traditional crafts. He started with us in August and is in the forging workshop in Bromma four days / week to learn the profession in real life from their experienced supervisors. Tom now has the opportunity to further develop his knowledge, skills and competencies. Among other things, he gets to learn machines, welding techniques, metalworking, materials. He has been involved in manufacturing exclusive wrought iron railings, wine racks, protective products and folding glass sections and also products for our web shop.

Right now he is working on his degree project. He makes a lamp out of cloverleaf. It is a large rectangular lamp that should hang from the ceiling with wires or chains. Tom says that you should be able to put spices etc. on the lamp. It is built of waste plates, which is good for the environment. Tom likes to combine metal and lighting. The lamp must be painted when it is finished because an untreated steel needs to be rust protected. Tom has also started building a smaller oval lamp made of cloverleaf. Clover plate has many areas of use such as valve grilles, element protection, interior details.

It will be exciting to follow Tom's degree project. At the end of May, we will be able to see Tom and the other apprentices' degree projects at the exhibition on Drottninggatan.

Apprentices and trainees

We at Lundgrens are happy to accept apprentices and trainees. Here you can read more about Sam who also attended the Crafts Academy's apprenticeship and did his LIA (learning in working life) with us. For some time now, we have also been accepting people from MISA for work placements.

It feels important to preserve the craft tradition and give students and other interested parties the chance to gain the experience and knowledge they need. It is also a contributing factor to our course activities in welding and metalwork.

Traditional crafts

At the Crafts Academy, you can train in about 80 traditional craft professions. For example smith, upholsterer, cabinetmaker, watchmaker and tattoo. It is a modern apprenticeship to meet the need for a modern workplace-based vocational education today that benefits both industries and students. You spend 80 percent of your lesson time on your apprenticeship. The rest of the time you are in the classroom and learn what you need to know to become a good entrepreneur.

The apprenticeship model is particularly well suited for education in traditional craft professions and is primarily aimed at those of you who have already come a long way towards their profession and may be planning to start their own business after the education. You can read more about the Craft Academy and the apprenticeship here.

Degree exhibition

The apprentices are allowed to show their degree projects at the exhibition, which concludes the apprenticeship. The exhibition includes a unique collection of high-quality degree projects and objects designed and created by skilled graduating students. Several craft professions are in place. A fun exhibition where you get to take part in interesting masterpieces by real craftsmen.
