On Sunday 6 March at 1 pm, a workshop will be held for the whole family, led by Ásthildur Magnúsdóttir. Participants are allowed to comb and spin their own thread from raw wool. Not everyone realizes what our clothes are made of, but wool and plastic are among the things used today. It will no doubt be fun to take part in a chat with Ásthildur, who is a part-time teacher at the Reykjavík Art School, where she teaches weaving and knitting, but wool is her special hobby. However, those who just want to shred and pull and handle the wool are truly welcome in the space of the Design Museum called Smiðjan.

Sunday, November 7 at 13 will be a shoebox workshop for the whole family.

Let's create a home in a shoebox that is based on people's ideas over the years about what is cozy. What were the ideas of the kids in the settlement age about what was cozy when we sat by the long fire and how do we have a nice time together today?

The ethnographer Dagrún Jónsdóttir and the designer Ásgerður Heimisdóttir will lead the workshop, which is intended for the whole family, but it would be good if people bring a shoebox with them. Learning about life during the settlement age and fun design of a home in a shoebox is the perfect recipe for a cozy Sunday.
