Northern Woman Productions presents:
Viking Longhouse Weekend Gathering:
September 15th-17th, 2023
During the Viking age the Nordic peoples built immense structures that housed extended families who practiced communal living. The Longhouses were also havens of hospitality.
Northern Woman’s Longhouse Gatherings are a way to recreate this shared experience with our “extended family”.
Exploring the changing seasons, we’ll camp in tents, share meals, go on group hikes, play rustic games, and learn Nordic bushcraft skills among other things.
Around the campfire at night, there will be storytelling, readings from the Norse Myths and Sagas, and music played on replica instruments from the Viking Age.
These will be a time for gathering together likeminded people to provide a taste of communal life immersed in Nordic traditions.
Classes on specific topics will be offered as interest is expressed.
Workshops will be led by teachers who have expertise in particular areas.
