Textile Center

Domiciled under the roof of the historical building of Kvennaskólinn, the Icelandic Textile Center is a creative hub and makerspace located in Blönduós, Northwest Iceland. We work on research projects and participate in long-term collaborations that involve international partners. Education and innovation in the field of textiles, textile art and design are encouraged e.g. through workshops in the TextileLab and our textile residency program. 

Ós Residency provides visiting students, scholars, and artists with working spaces to conduct their artistic practice, research, and study-trips within textiles.

The Center is led by a governing board that comprises representatives from universities, regional municipalities, associations and businesses, including the Association of Municipalities in Northwest Iceland, Reykjavík School of Visual Art and Icelandic University of the Arts.
