Vatnsdælur Tapestry

The Vatnsdælur Tapestry, by Jóhanna Palmadóttir, is a long term project here at the residency that illustrates a local saga.  Jóhanna teaches people how to embroider, and then everyone is welcome to contribute to the piece.

A friend of the current coordinator visited and worked on the tapestry.
