They also learned a lot about Icelandic wool in Álafoss factory and Þingborg, and tried to knit a sweater in Icelandic way.The sweater suddenly turned into an elf! Visiting national museum Árbæjarsafn,famous Icelandic artist Steinunn Marteinsdóttir í Hulduhólumm, talking to the owners of Minna Mosfell guesthouse, who have elves stone in the farm and listening to the tales told by Ragnhildur in Alfaborg made the participants to believe that everything what people do in Iceland is inspired by old tradition sand different spirits living together with people. Professional photographer Jonas Danielevicius led the workshop ‘Footprints of elves in Icelandic nature’.Partners from Lithuania, the Netherlands, Portugal and Germany presented their homework "Spirits and other ‘creatures’ living in my country". Exhibition of Sunday School children's drawings of Icelandic elves and photo exhibition washeld at Idnskolinn í Hafnarfirdi.
