Activities and projects
We want to create a destination with different ACTIVITIES such as workshops and D.I.Y., seminars and lectures, innovative activites with focus 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.
"Dräll på Rydal" 10-11 May 10.00-17.00The event focuses on weaving from the unique textile tradition and cognizance of the area of the Seven Districts (Sjuhäradsbygden).
Welcome to take part of our lectures, workshops and exhibitions compiled from companies to associations.
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.

We organise several Weaving Cafés at the konferenscenter in Rydal. These are appreciated and well visited.
We would like to thank everyone that contributed to our café's this spring.
