Do you have any craft skills?
Do you want to learn how to make craft?
Would you like a cup of coffee in a nice crowd?

The International friends project is starting a crafting group with emphasis on international craftwork. The group will be situated at the Reykjavik Red Cross, Laugavegur 120 (same house as Arion bank across Hlemmur), 5th floor, the first and third monday every month at 10-12.
Through our work with the International friends program we have met women of both foreign and icelandic origin who know craftwork from all over the world. We want to create a forum where women can learn various craft from each other and get new ideas from different cultures.

The coming fall the International friends project will celebrate 5 years in progress.
For that occasion we would like to do something fun and interesting.  One of our ideas is that the new group of women will make a piece of art with ,,around the world with art“ for exhibition on this occasion.

The first meeting of the group will be monday 20th of february at 10-12. At that meeting all participants will discuss the project and decide how to procede. Children of all age are welcome.

For those of you who want to participate it would be great if you would send us e-mail to and let us know so that we will have some idea on how many to expect.
