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.
"Dräll på Rydal" a successful first attempt that gives us the inspiration to carry on with our vision.Enlightened and intrested visitors got to take part in this event in an estimated number of 2500. We want to thank everyone involved ; you have made it possible to realize our Weaving event.
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.
