Join us at Scandinavia House for a family-friendly art workshop on Nordic pattern design! In this activity for children ages 5-12 and their families, participants will learn about Swedish and Finnish patterns by Marimekko, Hilma af Klint, and more.
Kids will then learn how to collage patterns of their own under the guidance of Icelandic Teaching Artist Melkorka Helgasdottir, also known as Korka.
All materials are provided.
