Dala Horse Carving Day - July
- Dala Horse Carving Day - July
The Dala Horse is a traditional symbol of Sweden.These horses were carved by men working in the forests during long winter evenings and brought back to the village for the children to play with. This is how the little wooden horse from Dalarna became a treasured object. These simple wooden horses were later painted in bright colours inspired by the flower patterns painted on furniture and walls in the region.
Why not try your hand at carving your own Dala Horse.
