2023-11-19 – Making Folk Costumes: A History of Craftmanship, Patience and the Love of Traditions (Webinar)



Sunday, November 19 (11:00 am-noon CT)



Barbro Storlien



This is an online class hosted on Zoom. 


Join Barbro Tronhuus Storlien for a lecture on Norwegian folk costumes. Norway has a variety of more than 450 different folk costumes, and many of these have intricate embroideries. Many of the folk costumes are easily recognizable while others are more unknown. In this lecture, Storlien will talk about the differences and similarities between the Norwegian areas, show some of the techniques and raise the important question – how do we keep this knowledge alive for future generations?

Storlien is a certified maker of folk costumes, who, in addition to having her own studio, teaches the art of embroidering and assembling folk costumes.


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