Textile Trail

Textile Industry - Behind the Scenes

WOVEN’s Textile Trail offered visitors the opportunity to visit heritage settings, go behind the scenes of textile industries, visit independent artist makers in their studios and find out where to get hold of the best textile supplies.

We had an astonishing  response from the textile community who provided open days, workshops, guided tours and events.

Thank you to everyone who contributed and helped create such depth and diversity to the events we were able to include in the programme.
