Abstract [en]

To practice and master a craft, to possess a craftsmanship, is about managing materials, tools and specific techniques in a creative process that leads to a product. During the process the craftsman make interpretations and assessments based on knowledge, experience and skill, which gives a certain quality in the result. But what if the craftsman is a teacher, an artist, or a drama pedagogue? The attempt of the paper is to describe the characteristics of these professions in relation to craftsmanship.

In the paper theories of practical knowledge, craftsmanship and tacit knowledge are presented. The concept of a subject’s professional object is explained as something that the profession possess special knowledge of, the task the profession is to achieve (Carlgen & Marton, 2005). The professional object is staged performance for actors, learning for teachers and suggestively altered understanding through impersonation for drama pedagogues. The other components connected to the craftsmanship of the three professions are discussed and then summarized in a table. 

The actors and the teacher’s craftsmanship differ quite a lot. The professional object, the material and the product are completely different from each other. The skills of the drama pedagogue are similar to both the teacher and the actor. Common to all professions is that the process is about action, though the teacher’s action is pedagogical and the actor’s action is creative.

The paper is part of the dissertation work "Professional encounters in art and learning". The focus is on collaborative projects where schools and Art institutions work together, using drama as part of the process.
