Book now

Three braiding techniques are taught in this course. They are made the same way as Vikings did them a 1000 years ago.

To oldest plaited garters found in Denmark is from Mammen (10th century) although the same technique is found in the bronze age. The technique from plaids made with our traditional 12 threads has been used all over the world at all times. Traditionally this is used for the whaling knife. The traditional braid used for edging clothes also has roots in the Viking age.

The teacher is Ann Árnastein. She was just 5 years old, when her interest in handcraft started – knitting, embroidery, sewing and ribbon braiding. Furrier and fashion design are her educations and she is an experienced teacher in courses in braiding, knitting, rya, traditional leather shoes and many other.

The course is in Faroese (Scandinavian and English as needed) and lasts for 3 hours. Limited seats!

The course takes place in Tórshavn. Included in the price are materials. We offer refreshments and a Viking cookie. In addition, you get a day ticket to the Viking market, which is in the plantation in the days 1st to 3rd of July 2022.
