Bygdøy is a peninscula close to the centre of Oslo. The Oscarshall Palace, the Norwegian Folk Museum and the Royal Stables are all situated on the Bygdøy. Both the lectures and meals are in the "Gjestestuene" at The Norwegian Folk Museum.
The Workshop with practical hands-on demonstrations of different mortars is in the Royal Stables. There will be guided tours on the Oscarshall Palace worksite. All are within short walking distance. We plan to go directly from the workshop to the dinner. The hotels are in Oslo centre, not at the Bygdøy peninscula.
Representantives from Remmers, Vicat and St. Astier. will be running practical workshops on their products; incl. rendering, running in-situ, casting, touching-up etc. Anyone can participate.
The representantives are there for the duration of the seminar and the participants can drop in either during the lectures or in the long breaks.
Guided tours of Oscarshall take place with 5 groups having not more than 15 participants (Thursday 09.00-10.00, 10.00-11.00, 14.00-15.00; Friday 08.00- 09.00, 13.00- 14.00). Sign on for one of the tours when you register, by sending an e-mail or by using this site's contact form.
