Designed against the backdrop of the historic Turnblad Mansion, this immersive exploration showcases the unique traditions and the special place of all things handmade in Nordic holiday culture. Each room illustrates customs that are cherished across Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Finland, and this year’s special guests from the Czech American community.
The exhibition included a special installation featuring local Minnesota artists and makers as they interpret these traditions through unique handcrafted pieces.
