Dala Horse Carving with Rose Holdorf
Location: Portland Studio
Teacher: Rose Holdorf
Availability: SOLD OUT
Traditionally carved from pine wood scraps leftover by builders, the Dala Horse is a national symbol of Sweden and marks those dark winter days when carvers sit by the woodstove to whittle. With roots in the 1700s, the famous wood carvers of the Swedish Dalarna region still hand-carve these pine figures today, and finish them with a traditional kurbits-style, hand-painted decoration. In this seasonal workshop, students will learn Scandinavian flat-plane figure carving techniques as we work on our own dala-inspired horses. Toward the end of the class, students will finish their horses with all-natural milk paint in patterns of their choosing.
