Place: Nasjonalmuseet - Verksted A, 2nd floor
Date: October 22
Time: 12.00-16.00

Meet in workshop A, 2nd floor, access via room 86. Children are admitted free of charge, but must be accompanied by an adult with a valid ticket to the National Museum.

About the workshop

The workshop is inspired by artist Hanne Lydia Opøien Figenschou's grayscale drawings on black paper. You can see these in the exhibition. You will also be able to see Erik Werenskiold's own copy of the book Familien på Gilje, where he drew his first ideas for the illustrated edition directly in the book pages. The illustrated edition was published in 1903.
