Himmeli

Mary Erickson, Fiber Artist

Himmeli making is one of the ethnic crafts brought to the Iron Range by Finnish Immigrants. A himmeli is a mobile made from straw which historically hung above a table or dining area. Rye, wheat or native growing grasses were cut and strung together into geometric shapes to create the mobile. More than a decoration, they were a link to old folk farming beliefs ensuring a bountiful crop. Today, himmeli are a Christmas tradition, a symbol of straw in a manger. As a hanging mobile they are in motion and when they turn, the shapes of the himmeli will visually change and create dancing shadows on the ceiling or walls. In this class we will make Christmas ornaments in the basic shape for the Keski Pohjanmaa himmeli. Bring a ruler and scissors. All other materials will be provided. Open to adults and students 7th grade and above". Register by December 1st.

About the instructor: Mary Erickson is a fiber artist with a focus of interpreting the landscape, history and people of the MN Iron Ranges. She is also fascinated with how ethnic traditions carried by immigrants become blended into the American culture. Mary first studied Himmeli making in MN with Elna Hietala, through a MN State Arts Board Folk Arts Master-Apprenticeship Grant. And recently travelled to Finland to study with Eija Koski, an internationally known himmeli artist, with grant funding from the Finlandia Foundation National and The Finnish American Friends Chapter Hibbing, MN. Mary believes that teaching and sharing information about traditional crafts is vital to keeping them alive today and into the future.
