Gudbrandsdal Rosemaling

Course Overview

This beautiful style of rosemaling (traditional Norwegian painting) originated in the Gudbrandsdal valley of Norway. Modeled after the look of the acanthus-style wood carving the valley is also known for, Gubrandsdal rosemaling reflects the three-dimensional appearance of acanthus leaves. Students will practice the basic strokes of the style, and then move to a 12” round design that will fit on a plate or other surface of their choice. This is a fairly challenging style of rosemaling, so it is recommended that students be at an intermediate skill level in other styles before taking this class (see Valdres or Telemark styles offered at North House). Students who would like additional practice can sign up for an optional 4th day for an additional $50 tuition.
