Band Weaving in the Galleri

There is still time to register for the second “class in the Galleri” event connected with the Norway House exhibit, “Traditional Norwegian Weaving American Reboot.” Last week, students enjoyed Melba Granlund’s “Viking Knit Bracelet” class in the light and textile filled Norway House Galleri.

On August 14 and 21 the Galleri will be filled with band weavers. Students will learn to weave intricately patterned and colorful bands found throughout Scandinavia and the Baltic regions, and used by the Sami people as embellishments on their folk costumes.

It’s a rare opportunity to learn while surrounded by beautiful traditional and contemporary weavings.  Trade the sun and humidity for inspiration and weaving for a while this month. Sign up with a friend or family member!
