About the Yarn Spinning Mill

The building of Cultuurhuis Garenspinnerij has an interesting history as a former workshop of the Goudsche Machinale Garenspinnerij, founded in 1861. It once employed around 400 employees, including children. Upon reaching its centenary in 1961, the company received the Royal designation. After moving to Waddinxveen in 1981, the building was taken over by the municipality of Gouda.

Since the extensive renovation in 2014, the building now shines as the cultural one hotspot for Gouda and surrounding areas. With spaces for StudioGonz, Youth Theater House, Amateur Art Network and Garenspinnerij Culture House, it is the place for young and old for art and theater education, expression and connection. Whether it concerns attending workshops or courses in visual arts, theatre, music, media and dance, admiring exhibitions, visiting a concert or simply a nice flexible workspace in the foyer; Garenspinnerij Culture House is always open to everyone.
