Learn About Decorah’s Norwegian Traditions

Book a class to make cocktails with a caffeine kick at Kaffee and Cocktails with Impact Coffee, held virtually March 4 through Decorah’s Folk Art School.

Do a deep dive into Norwegian culture at Decorah’s Folk Art School through the Vesterheim National Norwegian-American Museum. Classes are all online.

Based on Scandinavian culture, the classes include arts and crafts, cooking, woodworking and more. We’re interested in courses on knitting, the yarn-dying process, and chef Nevada Berg’s new book, “North Wild Kitchen.” You can also take a cocktail class, which comes with a decorated glass, jigger, spices and a Swedish towel. Some of the classes include kits with materials and tools; others require you to buy materials from a supply list. Some involve just logging in.

The museum touts itself as offering the only online folk art school. Check out this website for a complete list of classes and pricing information.

And if you’d prefer just to shop instead of taking the DIY route, the website sells clothing, folk art supplies, food items, books and gifts.
