Icelandic Culture & Craft - Knitting Workshop

Icelandic wool is unique and incomparable to wool in other parts of the world. Having evolved for 1100 years in cold northern climates, the Icelandic wool possesses a unique combination of internal and external fibers.

This three-hour workshop is designed for knitters of all levels and ages – beginner to advanced. The workshops are lead by the qualified crafts teacher ragnheiður jóhannsdóttir, a highly skilled knitter with over 40 years of experience.
A popular technique we offer is learning to knit in the continental style as well as knitting with several colors and learning about traditional Icelandic patterns. The workshops are tailored to fit individual wishes and skill levels.
