Pop over to the Ailsa Craig Arts Centre; a living legacy from the ACQFAF to see a display from local photographers who have travelled to Iceland. Be captivated by the Huldufolk houses you will find around town as we extend our hospitality to the Hidden Folk of Iceland.

Register for classes in February and chat with the Icelandic Quilters, spinners and weavers who have travelled to join us and to share their techniques. On May 26th, don’t be alarmed to learn “The Vikings Are Coming!”.
