Landscape for the Chosen Ones – Creative Hat Workshop

Saturday November 4th at 1-3 p.m., we invite children and their families to attend a creative hat workshop in connection with the museum’s ongoing autumn exhibition, Landscape for the Chosen Ones, looking at escapism through art.

Guided by fashion designer Sól Hansdóttir, who is one of the participating artists of the exhibition, the participants will create hats inspired by art and the avant-garde. We will then explore the different possibilities of making a headdress, considering how and when a hat turns into a sculpture or an artwork in its own right. All materials are provided.

Sól Hansdóttir (b. 1994) graduated with an MA in fashion design from Central Saint Martins, London, in 2021. In her work, she often reuses material from her surroundings, creating spiralling garments crafted with utmost simplicity and intuition. Her graduate collection, Three Theories of Evil, was awarded the L’Oréal Professionel Creative Award. Her collections have been exhibited at London Fashion Week and in Gerðarsafn, Kópavogur.

The workshops will take place on the ground floor of the museum and we ask that children attend accompanied by parent(s) or guardian(s). As always, participation in workshops and entrance to the museum’s exhibitions is free of charge.
