On cold and sunny days the snow can have so many colours.
Enjoy photos from the workshop we had for kids the other day with Baniprosonno and Putul.
Branches turned into phantastic animals, all kinds of animals came out of a felt pen.

We will soon start clearing out everything and then start to put in things as we want to have them. There is lots of work to do as you can imagine but we are very optimistic to be able to get it ready before the new year!
It will be a Creative Center where there will be room for more people to stay and working spaces for them. There will also be rooms for exhibitions, lectures, work spaces for groups etc. It is our hope to be able to have courses there and seminars. The residents will be living in Kistan, the brown house, where there are 4 bedrooms, 3 downstairs and one upstairs with a balconey. A work studio and spaces for the other activities will be in the white building, Miðstöðin.
We hereby ask you all to think about how you yourselves could benefit from this expansion? Could you bring over groups to work on short and intense projects? We are already working on some ideas and welcome more.
The Eyvindartunga farm will still be a part of the residency, this is an addition to that.

The month of october is full of colour, autumn palette was at its best and now the sky has given us the wonders of playful colors and light.
Our guest Jennifer took some amazing photos and said it reminded her of The Wizard of Oz.
Liisa has spent some time finishing her paper to get the teacher licence. Now she has settled in the studio, happy of course.
Our guests still enjoy every moment and work the harder.
The Art Loop Project people came and left and we will be watching their exciting journey to the end. What a privilege for us to be part in it. Hallur Karl did a good job!

Late in july the Gullkistan residents presented their work, what they had been up to the last few weeks. There were many surprises and it is not easy to write about… A pianist spun wool. A writer who came to finish a novel had started a new one. A filmmaker who came with his artist wife could not help writing a script for a new movie and was well on his way. Meanwhile they travelled and she gathered materials that had started to take shapes in unexpected drawings and many new questions in her quest for merging art with sciences. A painter successfully searched for a new touch of his brush. An artist found mountains and skin in paper and moss. A fiber spider found paper and paint while spinning. Nearby dailies became cyber scapes from the future. Children were lovingly involved in it all.
For all of us – new beginnings and no ends, new ideas and new friends.
