Visit Faroe Islands x Scandinavia House Faroese Knitwear Showcase & Drop-In Meet & Greet at Scandinavia House
Explore the art of knitting, a cottage industry that holds deep cultural significance for the Faroese. Open Saturday April 20 and Sunday April 21, visitors can hear from knitwear brands, shop Faroese styles and even learn to knit. From 10 am - 6 pm on Saturday, April 20, the Faroese knitting exhibition will include a screening of the short documentary The Wool Islands, followed by a panel discussion of knitwear designers moderated by model and actress Isabella Rossellini. The panel conversation will explore wool, traditions, knitting and fashion — how the Faroese (historically and to today) have contributed on these topics. The program will be followed by a Faroese Knitwear Showcase & Drop-In Knitting event from 1-5 PM, complimentary for panel attendees.

Knitting workshops teaching the craft, hosted by Shisa Brand will also be offered on Sunday, April 21 from 12:00 - 2:00 PM. Highlighting the oldest and most sacred creative industry in the Faroe Islands, visitors will have an opportunity to meet Faroese designers to talk wool, knit, tradition, design vision and sustainable fashion.

Admission is free for attendees of other weekend design events (including both the panel and film screening and the workshops) and $5 for other drop-ins.
