2024-02-06 Exploring Hardanger Embroidery (Online)



Three Tuesdays, February 6-20 (3:00-5:00 pm CT)


Shan Rayray


This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


Hardangersøm is Norwegian drawn thread work. In this continuing Hardanger embroidery online class, you will learn common Hardangersøm stitches as you make a coaster (or you can add a hanger and make it an ornament). Instructor Shan Rayray will take you step-by-step through each of the stitches (kloster blocks/satin stitch, drawn thread work with woven bars, cable, picots, and buttonhole edge).

The class will consist of three sessions over three weeks. Each session will be accompanied by a video tutorial that you can refer to between class sessions as you complete each step. All materials will be provided, except Stork scissors. If you don't already own them, Stork scissors are available for purchase in the Vesterheim Museum Store.



A kit of supplies with two prepared 22-count Hardanger squares, DMC embroidery thread and tapestry needles is included with registration. Additionally you will need to provide sharp embroidery scissors. You may wish to provide a needle theader, thimble, and magnifier.

If you are registering for this class in a location outside the United States, you will need to provide your own supplies. Please contact folkartschool@vesterheim.org when you register for more information about what materials are required for this class.

Additional Supplies:

Students will need to provide a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection. 


Embroidery experience is encouraged.
