A Dalecarlian horse, also known as a Dala horse, is a traditional carved, painted wooden statue of a horse originating in the Swedish province of Dalarna (Dalecarlia). In the old days, the Dalecarlian horse was mostly used as a toy for children; in modern times it has become a symbol of Dalarna, as well as of Sweden in general. Since the time of the Vikings, the horse held a special spiritual significance. Wooden toys were often made for children using scraps from furniture making. The Dala Horse, with its iconic red coat and painted flowers, became common in the 1800s. This Dala Horse felt embroidery workshop has all the beauty and tradition of the original horses but is made out of felt instead of wood. Age – 5 years and older recommended Parent supervision is needed for this workshop. Parents are encouraged to help their children with the stitch.

This event is free.
