About the Course
Discover the stunning landscapes of the Faroe Islands in the company of fellow travellers who share your passion for knitting. Enjoy two and a half days of private workshops, where, under the guidance of local knitting expert Katrina I Geil, you’ll learn about the Faroese knitting traditions as you create your own Faroese inspired project.
With both included excursions and a choice of optional tours you can delve deep and explore the stunning landscapes and extraordinary nature of this remote north Atlantic outpost. Learn about the islands’ history, traditions and culture with a visit to the National Museum, meet local textile artists and sample the local Faroese cuisine.

This was definitely a"holiday"! I enjoyed the workshop and the excursions to visit the country. Juliet and Pru were good leaders and the women in the group got along well. Very nice experience. I would do it again.

A fabulous experience. Beautiful place, great accommodation, guides, visits, classes, food. It was all fantastic, even the weather. I recommend this place to anyone who enjoys interesting and unusual places with plenty to do and visit. Wonderful knitting and yarn shops and great classes with Katrina.

My booking was held for me. Process was hassle free
Miss White - - #21381
Everything was well prepared and the guides were very good. The only not so nice thing was the dinner at the end of the trip. the food was cold and exactly the same as on the first evening meal. Otherwise I would recommend this trip and this agency to my friends.

Fascinating experience. Accommodations and food fine, although many meals were on our own. Knitting instructor Kristina Geil was exceptional— good communicator, excellent teacher with excellent command of knitting techniques, very personable. Made time with her (and especially the visit to Nolstoy) very meaningful.

The balance between knitting, sightseeing and free time was perfect. We had an excellent tour manager. And our tutor, Katrina, was inspirational as well as technically good. She shared so much information about the Faroes.
