The name of the TECHNE SERIES is derived from the Greek word techne, which is used in the sense of doing or mastering, both technically and artistically. It is also used in the widest sense of knowing and understanding - coping or dealing or being familiar with something. The concept of techne includes all the various forms of crafts associated with the Nordic terns forming, händarbejde and slöyd (sloyd) as well as duodji or Lappish craft.
SLOYD is used as an umbrella term for different educational crafts whose scientific basis is to be found in Sloyd (or Crafts) Education and Crafts Science.
