Visit FigurMakeriet and KunstVerkstedet at Fru G.
FigurMakeriet offers a unique insight into the ancient art of figurine making.
During the 1800s, Italian figurine makers emigrated to Norway from places such as Bagni di Lucca. We have learned this amazing craft from the son of one of these emigrants, Valente, who ran a figurine workshop in Oslo until around 1960. Most of the gifts / home accessories are our own design, decorated by hand, and unique. We take great pride in continuing this old traditional craftmanship.
A selection of products from FigurMakeriet is available in our shop.
Draw inspiration from KunstVerkstedet. Among the items on sale are paintings, collages, and installations. Many of the works are by the hosts themselves, but there are also the occasional guest exhibitors at the gallery. Welcome to an array of creativity expressed in a variety of media.
FigurMakeriet & KunstVerkstedet are open from April to December.
About Fru G.
Fru G enjoys a rural setting, but is still only 5 minutes from route E6 and also within easy reach of Ringsaker church. In the building dating back to 1850, one of the beautiful rooms is used as a shop selling unique items from FigurMakeriet. Also on sale are seasonal produce from own garden, and gourmet food items from local producers.
The house also comprises a café and function rooms. We have let the “building decide” its interior design, and have decorated with old-world furnishings and artefacts. Your coffee is of course served from old porcelain coffee pots.
Weather permitting, you can enjoy lunch, coffee and homemade treats by the pond in our idyllic garden – or treat yourself to a bit of luxury with Fru G`s Æftas-Te in surroundings that are as made for a traditional English afternoon tea (NB! Æftas-Te must be booked two days in advance).
The garden pavilion is our own little "chambre separee", and is ideal for groups of up to 10 people looking for somewhere a bit more secluded.
Welcome, we hope you have an enjoyable time here with us!
Your hosts, Vivi-Ann and Asbjørn Gjersing
