Would you like to try something new? If so, maybe you'd like the Nordfjord style of painting on a green turned bowl with lettering. In this class, we will first learn what elements and colors are found in the ale bowls from Nordfjord. Next we will take that information and create a design of our own making, with help if requested. Your design will then be painted on a green turned bowl made especially for this class. To finish your bowl, time will be spent lettering the outside of the bowl with an authentic saying found on the old ale bowls from Nordfjord. Acrylic painters are welcome.
Registration for this class has closed.
