Printmaking in Iceland

5 members of Peregrine Press had the opportunity to travel to Iceland in late June.  Our host was Sola Halldorsdottir who we had met the previous summer at a master printmaking class at the Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ireland.  Joined by Mary Patterson from Ireland (who had also been with us at Ballinglen) and 2 of Sola’s friends from Iceland, Hronn and Kristen, we had an amazing 10 days art making and sightseeing.  Our teacher Elva Hreiðarsdóttir worked with us at the Hvitahus residency house (which she owns and runs) on the Snaefellsness peninsula, about 3 hours from Reykjavik and then again back in Reykjavik at the Icelandic Printmaking Association.  An amazing experience all around!
