‪Culture and Craft 4 day workshop‬
לבד • ספט׳ 2019
‪4 days spent with Ragga Jóhannsdóttir - an experience I will never forget. Learned a lot re knitting techniques, history and Icelandic culture. Great conversations and got to know some local dining options when we had lunch. Ragga went out of her to make me feel welcome and to ensure I got the most out our time together. As a solo student there was time for her to show me some sights in Reykjavík with links to knitting, culture and history. Have a lovely Lettlopi child sweater almost done for friend’s son back home. I think he will love it. Thanks as well to her friend Valla ( not sure of spelling).‬

‪Knitting with Ragga was fun and educational!‬
חברים • יוני 2019
‪A friend and I had such a good time with Ragga at our knitting lesson in June 2019.  She is very experienced and great company too! I'd like to have more time to learn if I go back! It was a wonderful way to start our trip to Iceland and North Sea countries.

Our thanks to Ragga and her husband who arranged lunch snack and a ride back to our hotel. Iceland is a special place, and their thoughtfulness is special too!

‪Study Abroad program and the Troll Workshop‬
חברים • ינו׳ 2019
‪I brought a group of 18 students and Ragga and Valla came to our hostel for a troll-making workshop--it was a highlight of the trip. Ragga and Valla are warm, talented and fun and the students really valued the experience.‬

‪Learning to knit the Icelandic Way‬
לבד • אוג׳ 2018
‪I've been a knitter for 14 years but did not know how to knit with multiple colors before this trip. I had been wanting to learn for a while and once I saw this workshop I figured what better place to learn to knit color work than in Iceland!

Ragga was very nice and patient. We had some laughs together and it was just nice to get to hang out with an Icelandic person!

Best part: she didn't cancel the workshop for only 1 person! I noticed some of these smaller tours will not happen without a minimum number of people which makes it difficult for the solo traveler.

If you want to slow down and spend a few hours knitting and chatting and getting away from the typical tourist activities, sign up for this!‬

Thank you so much. I loved to spend this morning with you. That is true, many smaller tours will not happen without a minimum number of people. I think different. Everyone that book a workshop alone or in a group need some knitting knowledge. Hopefully, I can help. Thanks again. Ragga

‪Wonderful 5 days with Ragga‬
לבד • ספט׳ 2017
‪I really didn't know what I was signing up for when I joined Ragga's 4 day knitting workshop. Turns out I was the only student! Ragga listened carefully to what my hopes and expectations were and took it from there. Yes, I got a wonderful start on an Icelandic sweater (after she took me shopping at Alafoss!), but so much more. One of the best days of my whole 3 weeks in Iceland was the day we spent just driving in the countryside where I was free to stop and indulge my interest in sheep and photography. Ragga's English is flawless and she is an experienced knitting teacher. She even took me to an evening meeting of her craft guild--definitely an off the beaten track experience. I would encourage anyone interested in Icelandic crafts and wanting a special and unique experience to consider Ragga as a private guide. I was also present while she taught a short knitting workshop to 3 novice knitters and can vouch for her ability and enthusiasm in that setting as well.‬

‪My mom and I signed up for the 3-hour class and we wished we could have stayed all day. We learned some valuable knitting tips and made a great new friend -Ragga. The Álafoss store in Mosfellsbær is a treasure. Highly recommended. ‬

‪Knitting Lesson‬
חברים • ספט׳ 2017
‪Wonderful color work class taught by Ragga. The class inspired and challenged us. Ragga was very knowledgeable about Icelandic knitting. In addition to knitting tips she informed us of of sightseeing and restaurant recommendations. A 10/10 experience!

‪I joined a friend who had been lucky enough to have a 5-day Lopapeysa class with Ragga (the week before) for a morning's lesson on how to spin Icelandic wool. Ragga is not a spinner but has connections all over Iceland and we were happy with our spinning lesson with Rita, who also had fleece to sell as well as hand-made horsehair bracelets with reindeer and sheep horn bead closures as well as sheep's horn buttons. Fantastic experience. Icelandic fleeces are double-coated and we were especially interested to learn how to process them.

Following our workshop we went to lunch in the staggeringly good Mosfellsbakerí next door, where Ragga entertained us with fantastic information about Iceland. She is also a certified tour guide and this provided major added value! I can only drool with imagining what my friend's experience was having spent 5 additional days in Ragga's company.

Ragga will take larger groups than 5 but for the personalized attention to learning this beautiful craft, I don't recommend it. (She also teaches other Icelandic crafts, this might be easier.) The three people who were having a 3-hour knitting class seemed to get a lot out of it but might have preferred an extra hour of instruction.‬

‪I am not that patient type and I keep forgetting the key movements when I don't practice for a while :D But Ragga is an excellent teacher with a special gift. She also told us about Iceland and answered totally random questions as an honest local auntie. :) Loved it!‬
