Artisans at Work
What happens when sand becomes glass? Could it be true that the Aurland shoe is an international best seller? This and much more will be answered when you visit our artisans at work at Economusée.
There are 12 Economusée in Fjord Norway and all of them are experts within their trade.
Visitors are welcome to see the exhibits and you can learn about the history of the trade. Learn how a traditional Oselvar wooden boat is made (the same way as hundreds of years ago), how yarn is made at Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk or how the famous Aurlandskoen
shoe is made.
The idea of opening up these unique work places for visitors comes from Quebec. Today, the "Artisans at Work" concept has spread across the North Atlantic area: Greenland, Iceland, Faroe Islands and Norway. It all seems quite exotic, but the workers have their feet on the ground.
