Long ago, people discovered if they scratched hard-to-see patterns into wood and filled the scratches with dirt, the patterns would appear more vivid. Eventually this decorative technique, used on woodenware across Scandinavia since at least Viking times, adopted the name kolrosing (literally “coal-writing”) for the common use of coal dust as the colorant. In this workshop, get introduced to basic kolrosing tools and techniques, enjoy a signature drink from FIKA café and leave with a small wood trivet and new appreciation for this age-old decorative technique. $35/members, $40/non-members includes a drink and all class materials.
