The School of Housewives

The School of Housewives is just what it sounds like. It provides an education in the domestic arts, and preserves Icelandic traditions. Current and former students, including the occasional male student, discuss their experiences at the school. While modern society moves along and funding isn't what it used to be, the school remains a fixture in Icelandic society.
