Fea­tured talks

Doug Erik­son: Norse Artis­tic Styles

Doug Erik­son dis­cusses how, Norse art, orna­men­tal and abstract, is con­sid­ered out­stand­ing in achieve­ment and in its expres­sion of the dis­tinc­tive qual­i­ties of the Nordic peoples.

Terry Karlsen: Norse Ship Build­ing Innovation

Using exam­ples from Norse lit­er­ary mythol­ogy, Jeremy Smith will tell how Norse nar­ra­tive tra­di­tions fol­lowed sim­i­lar artis­tic style, tend­ing toward orna­men­ta­tion with a strong emo­tional strand, and how con­cepts and tra­di­tions from that mythol­ogy reach into cur­rent culture.

Jeremy Smith: Norse Mythol­ogy and Its Influence

Terry Karlsen, wood ship­wright, will describe inno­va­tions in Norse ship build­ing tech­niques (still used in the 20th cen­tury) that enabled Viking explo­ration and trade through four continents.

Linda Wood­cock: Viking Age Tex­tiles and Sail Construction

Linda Wood­cock, her­self a weaver and cre­ator of dec­o­ra­tive tex­tiles, will talk of Norse tex­tile cre­ation and design and show tech­niques of sail con­struc­tion that gave Viking crafts speed and distance.

Sheila Wright built her own lyres fol­low­ing designs from arche­o­log­i­cal finds. She will set the evening’s ambiance with music based on scales, har­monies and vocal tra­di­tions that were used dur­ing the Viking period.
