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 (just down the road from the Textile Center). 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 two Tc2 digital looms, a felt loom, laser cutter, laser printer, digital embroidery machine & digital 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.
