Vesterheim is coming to Massachusetts! Learn the basics of rosemaling, including the history, the strokes, and how to paint simple scrolls and flowers. This is a beginners class in Telemark style. It is a calligraphy style of painting that is very free and easygoing. Linda says, “Rosemaling is a matter of calming your mind and creating a rhythm. You focus on your project and after that, you just create.” You will work on masonite board and she will have patterns for you to begin. A “kit” with all necessary supplies can be purchased for $38.

Registration for this class has closed.
