HER BUSINESS: Pastahantverket
WHERE: SWEDEN, Stockholm
I am Helena and I am a Sfoglina.
I graduated from VSB summer 2019 after a spring in Bologna full of eggs and flour.
I had been searching for exactly this kind of school for ten years – on and off.
Today I run a business called Pastahantverket in Sweden, mostly Stockholm. Pastahantverket means The Pasta Crafts Workshop.
What I do:
– I do workshops for everyone whom wants to learn the craft of doing pasta by hand; from ordinary people to chefs or other professionals.
– I also do events, like PopUps at restaurants.
– And sometimes, when I have the time, I sell pasta that I have produced.
– During spring 2020 I made some instruction movies on You Tube
If you read this you know that all of us – educated at VSB – use only our hands, bodies and mattarellos as tools.
The satisfaction that gives, is really deep. And it also feels like I – we all – honour all the women and men before us that practiced the art of pasta making. For me, it´s a mission to spread the artigianato della pasta as much as possible.
