Enjoy the Revival of Kolrosing!
Kolrosing (coal-rose-ing) originally from Scandinavia is the delightful art of creating exquisite fine line decoration on wood. From spoons to furniture - contemporary kolrosing is not limited to traditional patterns - any design which can be drawn with a pencil can be done with a kolrosing knife from simple borders to animal forms to complex celtic and rosemaling patterns.
Watch through the eye of a powerful zoom lens - as Judy Ritger the most notable kolroser in the U.S. - teaches this beautiful and versatile craft. It is like having a class in your own living room! The gallery section is awe inspiring and the designing section alone is worth the entire video. Judy takes complex patterns and breaks them down to their very fundamentals
- then leads you to creating your own.
Winner of the Bronze Telly Award in 2005.
