FAROESE DESIGN, WOOL & KNITTING | SCREENING & PANEL

April 20—11:00 am1:00 pm

Presented in this spring’s “Fog Swept Islands: Faroese Culture Days,” join us a celebration of Faroese Design, Wool and Knitting! Today’s program will begin with a screening of the short documentary The Wool Islands (dir. Beinta á Torkilsheyggi and Marianna Mørkøre, 16 min.), followed by an introduction of the six Faroese brands participating in Fog Swept Islands: Einstakt, Shisa Brand, Navia, REKA, Steinum, and Durita Thomsen.

In the second part of the program, actress, model and sheep owner Isabella Rossellini will moderate a discussion with Sissal Kristiansen (Shisa Brand and The Wool Islands initiator), Jóhanna av Steinum (Steinum), and Óli Kristian á Torkilsheyggi (Navia). Their conversation will explore wool, traditions, knitting and fashion — how the Faroese (historically and to today) have contributed on these topics.
