Teachers in handicraft, teaching in schools for the first nine years of a child education forwards a cultural heritage. The purpose of this essay is to find out what the teachers opinion is about what constitute the Swedish textile cultural heritage. How the teachers relate to it and how they use it, then teaching. The essay is based on a qualitative method and consists of interviews with teachers. The interviews indicate that the textile cultural heritage consists of old methods for textile handiwork. The teachers also stresses that it is important for the pupils to have knowledge of the history of methods and materials and how it is made. The knowledge of the cultural heritage gives the pupils a possibility to relate to older generations. Therefore there is a potential of combining education in handicraft with for example history, which for the pupils would give a broader perspective. Knowledge of how different methods for creating things used in everyday-life have been used and developed could also increase the understanding of how people have lived.
