This online class is for beginning rosemalers and experienced rosemalers alike. Instead of painting we will be focusing our energy on demystifying the design process - which can be more intimidating than painting itself! Vesterheim Gold Medalist, Patti Goke will empower you to incorporate Telemark style elements into your own unique designs. All you need is your creativity and a desire to do some drawing!

This class includes three Zoom sessions:

  1. Saturday, October 10th, 10am-Noon
  2. Saturday October 10th, 3-5pm.
  3. Sunday October 18th, 1-2:30pm

We ask that you plan to be "working" on rosemaling from 10am-5pm on the first Saturday. From Noon to 3pm is independent work time, where you will have prerecorded youtube videos made by your instructor as a guide. This course include an additional Sunday session for collaboraitve learning. The goal of the Sunday session is to give students a week of time to design some work, to then come back to the class for discussion and feedback.
