has already attracted considerable attention and the number of those planning to participate is growing day by day. Last time we met on the Shetland Isles and now it is Iceland´s turn.
4 - 8 September 2014
Venue: Blönduós Town, NW-Iceland
North Atlantic countries participating:
Faeroes, Greenland, Iceland, Hebrides, Norway, Orkney and Shetland. Participants from other countries are also welcomed.
Speakers from the above countries inform us about sheep, wool and local conditions.
- Arts and crafts exhibitions will be held demonstrating a variaty of wool and other sheep products. It will be exciting to learn and see what people are
working on, not least here in Iceland, where much progress is evident.
- We will visit the wool factory Ístex in Mosfellsbær Town, the wool and crafts centre Ullarselið at Hvanneyri and the Thingborg crafts
centre in Flói. In the Blönduós area we visit sheep roundups and at least one typical sheep farm. The historically well know and unique church at Thingeyrar will be on our programme as well as visits to the adjacent
district of Skagafjörður where we will see the Tannery Guesthouse and the Kakalaskáli Cottage.
A detailed, final programme will be distributed in due course but we would like to hear as soon as convenient
from those interested in taking part.
Overseas participants will travel in a bus with a guide from Reykjavík City on 4 September to Blönduós Town and return on 8 September via the central highlands where Icelandic sheep graze
during the summer. When booking flights please ensure that you arrive in Iceland not later than 3 September and return not earlier than 5 September in order to be able to enjoy the full programme.
