This tour was canceled. We look forward to touring with you to Norway again!

Vesterheim’s tenth Textile Study Tour focuses on the textiles and traditions of the North Atlantic. Learn about weaving, knitting, spinning, embroidery, folk costumes, fashion, and contemporary design, while traveling through Yorkshire in England and Trøndelag county in Norway. The tour will include the cities of London, York, Trondheim, and Bergen. You will meet artists, historians, and curators, while visiting studios, factories, museums, and historic sites. Try your hand at textile techniques and enjoy the company of other textile enthusiasts.

Note: We are proceeding with the plan to travel in June 2021, but it is possible that we cannot safely go or cannot go without disruptive requirements such as two weeks of quarantine. Please know that your safety is our top priority. All tour deposit holders will be notified of any travel changes by February 28, 2021.
