Old will be new...

Old will be new … Three artists show how to use old craft traditions in a new way and even how to make used garments new again.
  • 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.
The exhibition was a collaboration between HANDVERK OG HÖNNUN and Skriðuklautur culture center.
