Loops 2010 yarn craft festival to take place in Iceland

loops-yarncrafts78Loops 2010 is an all-encompassing yarn craft festival taking place between the dates of June 17 and July 4 at the Nordic House in Reykjavik, Iceland. The festival features exhibitions, performance art, workshops, inspirational talks, markets and off-venue events. It celebrates the creativity found in knitting and crochet and ushers you into a world where everything is soft, colorful and intricately crafted.

Loops 2010 simultaneously reaches into the past and explores the present, capturing the essence of the Nordic knitting tradition and its current usage in art and design. The event will serve as a platform for guests to unravel the mysteries of different knitting techniques, to share collective knowledge and to be inspired by the work of artists and designers to see yarn crafts in a new light.

Among confirmed participants in Loops 2010 are artist/designer Isabel Berglund (DK), the designers behind popular craft-blog and online store Pickles (NO), knit-designer Vivian Hoxbro (DK), fashion designer Johanna av Steinum (FO), knit-graffiti team Masquerade (SE), and knit-designer Katrina I Geil (FO).
