Beginning Saami Bracelet
The dramatic landscape of northern Scandinavia is that of the midnight sun, northern lights, and the Saami, a nomadic tribal group that follows the migration of the reindeer. Traditional Saami jewelry incorporates elements of their northern landscape – softened reindeer leather and sculpted antler. In this class we'll explore the traditional jewelry techniques of triple braiding, coiled pewter wire, and sewing the finished braid to a softened reindeer hide strip. A reindeer antler button finishes off the bracelet. Class fee is $30 and is payable to Ingebretsen's. The materials fee is $85 and is payable to the instructor.

Decorative Swedish Folk Art Painting
Join us in Stockholm, Wisconsin for an introductory class to the beautiful decorative folk art of Sweden.
The early folk artists of Sweden painted scenes of everyday life, bible stories, and floral designs to brighten the walls in the dark interiors of their homes. You will learn the art form's history, pattern use, basic brush strokes and the special “Swedish” paint effects. The class will be taught using acrylic paints. The project will be painted on your choice of either a wall hanging or a canvas tote.
