WOVEN is a celebration of innovation in textiles across Kirklees

Saturday 8th to Sunday 16th June

The first WOVEN festival took place between Saturday 8th and Sunday 16th June. It was initiated by Kirklees Council, but was owned by everyone, from community groups, to industry, cultural organisations, artists, businesses and heritage sites across the district.

WOVEN’s theme is generations of innovators, connecting a strong heritage with today’s innovative developments in industry, university research, a strong arts and crafts scene and the creative expression of the district’s rich and diverse communities.

The next WOVEN festival will take place in 2021, until then look out for long term projects and smaller events happening over the next two years.
