Lecture: Adventures in Knutkorgar

Join Fred Livesay and Jane Laurence for a whirlwind recap of their 2022 adventures across Scandinavia in search of the secrets of the knutkorg, or knot basket. These woven baskets made their way from Sweden and Finland to the USA with 19th century immigrants, and with support from the American Scandinavian Foundation, Fred and Jane have followed them across Minnesota and back to their original source. History, process, and community connections will all be shared via photos, anecdotes, and some basket show-and-tell. Bring your questions!

Both in person and virtual tickets are available for this event. The virtual version of this talk will stream live over Zoom. Students need a strong internet connection and a device with video capabilities. Click here to purchase a virtual ticket.

Students are invited to stay for our February Makers Night after the program, a free, open craft night.
