Oscarsborg Spring 2024
Join WarmFolk and Karen Lewis Textiles on the island of Oscarsborg from April 12-14, 2024!
Karen Lewis has impressed quilting audiences for years with her creativity and surface design. We're so excited she'll teach her printing methods in the Oslo area during this weekend retreat. Karen will be teaching TWO workshops: linocut printing on textiles and silk screen printing on textiles.
The workshop cost includes teaching fees, all of the tools and supplies needed for the day, plus several fun extras! All workshop supplies come in a beautiful tote with event logos one side and a blank side to customize with your workshop creations. Hotel accommodations are charged separately and paid directly to the hotel. Read more about retreat details here.
While workshops can be taken a la carte, it is recommended to join us for the entire weekend. Selecting the option for "workshop with two-night hotel" creates an automatic reservation at the hotel under your name for Friday and Saturday nights and gives you the best rate for meals. This also creates opportunities for you to explore the island or enjoy some handwork on the balcony overlooking the Oslo fjord. Don't miss this chance to relax and get to know the other retreat attendees!
