About the Book
The Icelandic Textile Center is located in Blönduós, Iceland. Founded in 2005, the Textile Center aims to promote and develop Icelandic and international textiles. We collaborate on research projects in areas important to the region and encourage collaboration, education, and innovation in the field of textiles, textile art and design. Domiciled under the roof of the historical building of Kvennaskólinn, a former Women's College, the Textile Center Residency provides visiting students, scholars, and artists with working spaces to conduct their artistic practice, research, and study-trips within textiles. The Center is led by a governing board that comprises representatives from universities, regional municipalities, associations and businesses, including the Icelandic Innovation Center and Icelandic University of the Arts.
