Events include The Big Knit on the 8th which will encourage locals to yarn bomb landmarks across Kirklees as well as pop up exhibitions, galleries, live music and craft markets.
The history of the textile industry in Kirklees has helped create a great reputation for the areas fabrics. The production of textiles was transformed by the Industrial revolution as modern technologies meant new innovation within fabric making, with the regions industry gaining a place on the world map.
WOVEN is now trying to change perceptions of those who think that industry in Kirklees is dead. The textile industry in Huddersfield still exists today with companies such as Dugdale Bros & Co, and fabric from the Kirklees area is still referred to as “the finest cloth worldwide”.
WOVEN are hosting a launch event on Thursday 6th of June at the Magic Rock Tap Room, inviting anyone who is part of the WOVEN festival and events.
