Paint Your Own Dala Horse

Jason Patalonis, Kristine Peterson & Sarah Johnson (DIY Dala)

Wooden Dala horses started out centuries ago as childhood toys and have now become the iconic symbol of Sweden. In this class you will unleash your creativity to paint a personalized 2 dimensional 24” plywood Dala horse. Ideal for hanging on a door, over a fireplace or on a garage/barn or boathouse. Whether you are an art novice, home crafter or skilled painter, all levels are welcome. The best part of this experience is there is no one style or right way to paint our Dala horses. Horses are sanded and painted in your choice of background color and ready to decorate. Choose from traditional orange, Falun red, Swedish blue, yellow, white, black or green. Please note the color you plan on using at time of registration. Students are encouraged to research and think about possible patterns and color combinations (online resources abound) prior to class. You will also enjoy a traditional Swedish fika (coffee and sweets) during class. Please register for this class by Sunday, April 7.
