Spotlight

  • On May 21, 2021, Þórdís Kolbrún R. Gylfadóttir, the Icelandic Minister of Tourism, Industry and Innovation, and Lilja Dögg Alfreðsdóttir, the Minister of Education, Science and Culture, formally opened the TextileLab on Þverbraut 1 in Blönduós. The first of its kind in Iceland, the TextileLab offers access to state-of-the-art textile equipment and digital technology for makers, students and artists, including a Tc2 digital loom, felt loom, laser cutter, laser printer, digital embroidery & knitting machine. The project received a development grant from the Icelandic Infrastructure Fund and is part of the Textile Center's ongoing European collaboration CENTRINNO, funded by the research and innovation program Horizon2020. 

    In the upcoming weeks, we are working on programming and opening hours. If you are interested in using the Lab, send us an email (textilecenter@textilecenter.is) and follow us on social media!
