Students will be introduced via slides and a presentation to the Norwegian art of Skinnfell, in which designs are stamped onto leather and sewn into various objects such as mittens and headbands. In this class, because we cannot meet together, you will create a pair of heart-shaped ornaments made from sheepskin that has already been stamped with traditional designs. You will learn how to sew the sheepskin ornaments together.
The materials fee includes sheepskin, thread, and needles.
