What We Do
Education and courses
We will offer practical and theoretical courses. The ambition is to start a weaving teacher training program and supply staff from various weaving industries, handweavers included, with useful knowledge. To find our more click here.
Activities and projects
We want to create a destination with different ACTIVITIES, workshops and D.I.Y., seminars and lectures, innovative activites focusing on colour, design and technology. The centre will also accommodate different DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS, collaboration with colleges, universities and a wide range of companies. This center will promote sustainability and develop new technical solutions.
Rydal is situated on the banks of the river Viskan, North of the town called Kinna. Due to the well-preserved remains of an old industrial Community, Rydal is of national interest. The factory, alongside with several other buildings in the village, have been declared historical monuments. The village Community has an active team that organises activities and guided tours of the milieu. If you would like to find out some more about Rydal click here.
More weaving for the People!
We organise several Weaving Cafés at the old Spinning Mill in Rydal. These are appreciated and well visited.
The pandemic is still at large which gives us the opportunity to only meet digitally.
Unfortunately we can not offer weaving cafés this spring.
On the 28 of April at 18.00 hours you are invited to join our lecture on sustainable weaving through Zoom. The lecture will be in Swedish and held by Elaine Karhinen. If you are interested please send a notification via our MAIL.
