About Fabricademy

Fabricademy - Textile and Technology Academy is a 6-month intensive program at the intersection of digital fabrication, textiles and biology with a mission to (re)shape and (re)define the implications and applications of technology in the textile and clothing industry, from the fashion sector to the upcoming wearable market. The program explores the interrelation of human-technology-environment through the notions of embodiment, materiality, ecodesign, biodesign, performance, smart textiles and digital fabrication. The program consists of a combination of online lectures given by international experts and hands-on classes and machine access guided by local experts in a fully equipped lab environment. 

The program was first taught at the Textile Center in Blönduós from September 2022 - April 2023. Participants had access to our TextileLab facilities and visited the facilities at Biopol ehf, Marine Biotechnology Science Hotel in Skagaströnd, Ístex Wool Washing plant in Blönduós, the spinning factory in Mosfellsbær and Fab Lab Sauðárkrókur.
