Carol teaches sewing workshops at North House that incorporate traditional Scandinavian textile traditions along with contemporary craft. Through her travels, she has found inspiration in everyday as well as the festive textile and clothing traditions of Scandinavia. Her numerous publications discuss the design, techniques, and meanings behind Norwegian folk textiles, including clothing and household items. She taught period clothing design, pattern making, and sewing in universities before she began teaching focused heritage sewing workshops at Vesaas Farm Studio in Telemark, Norway, Vesterheim Museum in Decorah, and at North House. Students in her sewing workshops are introduced to an appreciation of traditional techniques while creating contemporary custom garments that are ultimately practical for the northern climate.
