Heritage classes

Heritage classes are a time and place where skills can be developed in Norwegian traditions.  These skills are things that would have been passed from one generation to another, grandparent to grandchild, parent to child.  Norskedalen offers a wide variety of heritage classes; some are a one-day class, some are workshops over multiple days, and yet others are are seasonal.  Below is a list of upcoming heritage classes; please call us for the details!
