The Hannah Ryggen Center

The Hannah Ryggen Center is dedicated to the Swedish-Norwegian tapestry weaver Hannah Ryggen (1894-1970).

May 11th - June 2nd

Hannah Ryggen was born Hannah Josefina Maria Jönsson in Malmø, Sweden. She moved to Ørland, Norway, 30 years old to live on a small farm with her husband, painter Hans Ryggen. Their daughter, Mona, was born in 1924. Hannah Ryggen died in Trondheim, Norway, in 1970.

She remains one of the most distinctive and influential textile artists of the 20th century. Throughout her career she was deeply engaged in current issues. The center showcases Ryggen’s life and art through permanent and temporary displays.
