Beginner/Advanced Rosemaling Workshop with Patsy Vork

Two Days  –  March 25 – 26

In this collective of beginners to advanced students, beginners will be introduced to basic principles and techniques of Telemark rosemaling. Practicing patterns that feature typical C- and S-stroke designs, we will work on brush handling, stroke execution, use of color, and design elements. Patterns will be provided, but whether or not to use them will be each student’s choice. Intermediate to advanced students will be given instruction with larger projects to choose and work on in class.
