Nordic Arts

Nordic Arts have been an important part of Scandinavians lives, long before the Vikings sailed the seas. Over the years, many renowned Nordic artists, like Edvard Munch, Tapio Wirkkala and Ole Kortzau have inspired Scandinavians as they create their unique arts and crafts. The members of the SSOC enjoy sharing their artistic creations through the Nordic Knitters, Nordic Painters, Nordic Weavers and Nordic Sculptures.

NORDIC PAINTERS
Many of our SSOC members enjoy expressing their creativity though painting. They create their artwork with oils, acrylics, watercolors and inks to name a few. Many of their inspirations for their paintings come from their experiences throughout the world. We hope you consider joining the Nordic Painters and share your unique creativity.

NORDIC WEAVERS
Scandinavians are known for their reflection of nature in their artwork and our Nordic Weavers artwork echoes many of these like Norwegian fjords, the stones on a Danish strand, and the beauty of the Finnish archipelago. Many of the SSOC weavers incorporate Icelandic wool, branches, shells, and beads in their weavings as they pay homage to nature. The hues and colors of their weavings often reflect years of memories. The Nordic Weavers share their different types of weaving and bespoke techniques helping each other explore the wonderful world of weaving.
