Instructor: 

Patti Goke

Location:

Independent participation

 

Rosemaling (or rose painting) is a decorative painting technique characterized by scrolls, leaves, and flowers and has been traditionally applied to woodenware. We invite you to try your hand at this historical handcraft. Several distinctive styles developed throughout Norway, and this experience focuses on the style unique to the Nordfjord region. You'll learn how to try different brushstrokes, resulting in beautiful decorative painting. Vesterheim Gold Medalist Patti Goke will inspire you to be creative in unexpected ways through a warm video demonstration. The best thing about this class is that you can watch the video and open your kit materials to explore rosemaling whenever it is most convenient for you and your family members! Your registration provides you with a kit that includes everything you need to explore this handcraft as a family at home!

 

Supplies: 

The $20-per-family price covers the cost of a special folk-art class kit designed for two participants to explore rosemaling. Kit includes all folk-art materials needed, some images as inspiration from the Vesterheim collection, and a treat.

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.

Special Instructions:  

This program is for families to experience on their own schedules. There is no live Zoom event and no scheduled class time – your family can participate anytime during the month when it works for your schedule! On the first of the month, you will receive an email with the links to the video tutorial. 

This series has been designed to facilitate an intergenerational folk-art experience for an adult and child duo to do together. Because of the specialized folk-art materials in each kit, we recommend this activity for children over the age of eight with adult supervision.

When registering for the class, please make sure to use the address you'd like the kit shipped to, and the email address you'd like the Zoom meeting invitations sent to. You will receive links to the Zoom sessions by email sometime during the week prior to the class. If this class is a gift, please sign up with the recipient's mailing and email addresses or be prepared to forward all communications and/or kit supplies.

Enrollment Deadline:
