TC2 digital loom

Our digital loom is situated in a separate, three-bedroom house next to Kvennaskólinn (Árbraut 35). The house is located along the banks of the Blanda River, with spectacular views of the river merging with the ocean and the northwest coastline.  The TC2 needs to be booked in advance; artists who book the digital loom stay at house 35, but have access to the Textile Center facilities. 

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. TC2 artists in residence have exclusive access to the digital loom during the time of their stay. TC2 residencies are restricted to one month. 

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