BESIDE Atelier - Passing down centuries-old knowledge.
Cleaning a fish, building a fire, foraging for mushrooms, carving a paddle from a trunk, sailing the coastline. When was the last time you built something from scratch, fixed something with your hands, or took something apart using wisdom from your grandmother?
Bit by bit, we are losing sight of these facets of craftsmanship that were once passed down through generations. Before it’s too late, let’s cut through the noise and start listening to those who have come before us, to learn the very knowledge that binds us closer to nature.
BESIDE Atelier brings you series of classes, workshops and how-to guides from longtime craftsmen and modern pioneers, ready to equip us with the tools to build a more sustainable future.
