Nordjord styled Rosemaling developed in the Nord-fjord region of Western Norway, in the northern part of Vestland fyllke (county). It is a small area about a third of the way between Bergen and Trondheim on the western coast. Museum pieces of this style began in the 1700s. The style was practiced until around the mid 20th century. The bowl centers may be geometric with interesting borders or flower based with symmetry. They have their own stylized tulip. The palette was limited with the background usually a red tone. Lettering is beautiful in this style and symbolism abounds.

Our teacher, Patti Goke, VGM, of Minnesota will be teaching this lovely 14” shallow bowl (or another piece of your choice) using acrylics. Class fee is $85.00 for 2023/24 members and $100 for others (covering the $15.00 membership fee). You are responsible for your wood, paints and mediums. Registration was open until Jan.6th, so if you have questions, see below!

She regularly teaches Zoom classes from her home in St. Cloud, MN and has taught at Vesterheim, and at various organizations from coast to coast, including two times at our convention (2006 & 2010). She has been a consultant to Disney for their Norwegian Epcot dispalys and for the artists for the movie Frozen. At this time, she limits her teaching to Zoom classes or local venues.
