TC2 digital loom

Our Tc2 digital loom is now located in the new TextileLab on Þverbraut 1 and needs to be booked in advance. Artists booking a digital loom residency either stay in the main house, or a three-bedroom house next to Kvennaskólinn (Árbraut 35), and have access to all Textile Center residency facilities (dye studio, main studio, etc.). We are currently in the process of restructuring the digital loom residency, and can no longer offer month-long exclusive access to the loom(s) for new applicants. 

With a TC2, artists can create designs which normally require a Jacquard loom. In shaftweaves: change the number of shafts, threadings and weave structures instantly. Our TC2 has a weaving width of 43 inch. and is equipped with 6 modules and 1320 warp threads, 12/cm or 30 epi. (See also images in our picture gallery.) The TC2 loom is static and has its own computer.) Please note that we do not provide materials or warp! 

Artists who book the TC2 loom need to be experienced digital loom weavers and know how to roll on the warp beam, thread the heddles, thread the reed and understand how the Tc2 software works, as we do not offer any introductory or weaving classes at this point in time. 

More information about how to apply for a digital loom residency can be found on our How to Apply page.
