Norwegian Wool Embroidery
Norwegian wool embroidery might simply be described as peasant painting for clothing. Traditionally, it incorporated bright colors and both fine and coarse stitching. In this class you will bring even everyday pieces of apparel to life. Coursework focuses on learning stitching techniques, incorporating traditional patterns and experimenting with personal expression. Wool embroidery is best explored on wool garments - you may bring your own project (mittens, small doll garment, wool jacket) or the instructor will provide options. Thick and colorful yarns, a wide range of threads and a variety of other materials will be available for you to experiment with during the course.
