Old will be new …

Three artists show us how to use old craft traditions in a new way and even how to make used garments new again. New exhibition "Handalögmál" in Skriðuklaustur.

Þórdís Jónsdóttir uses embroidery method that was used to decorate the skirts of apron and a continuum of Icelandic embellishments.
Philippe Ricart weaves light and beautiful shawls, quilts and scarves with wadding fabric and uses only Icelandic wool.
Ýr Jóhannsdóttir decorates used sweaters with embroidery and hand knitting and the garments get a new look and a new life. The best kind of recycling.
