Om arrangementet

Learn Hardanger in Hardanger!

15 – 17 September 2023 you can attend courses in Hardanger embroidery at Hardanger Folk Museum in Utne, Norway, and let our teachers show you the secrets and techniques of the handiwork, in the heart of the area where it once emerged. You will see our exhibition of Hardanger embroidery, the largest collection in Norway. From the 17th century onward women in the Hardangerfjord in Norway have sewn Hardanger embroidery as a part of the local costume traditions. Since then, the interest for this unique handiwork has spread to most parts of the world.

You are welcome to a three day course, with guided tours in exhibits and collections, lectures, overnight stay and full board. The courses are suitable for both beginners and more experienced stitchers.
