The Textile Trail will combine a series of open days in business, industry and heritage sites, as well as details of independent textile artists/makers with their own premises, textile-based shops and suppliers.
The intention is to open the doors to places people might not know about and create a buzz about exploring, making, and shopping for textiles. We want to put these places on the festival map, creating a Textile Trail that will include some locations that might open especially for just one day during the festival (Sat 8th – Sun 16th June), and some that are open all the time, but which we can use the festival to draw attention to and publicise.
We have now closed applications to the Textile Trail. We have had an amazing response from organisations and communities across Kirklees which has swelled our list of events to nearly 80. Thank you so much for your support and enthusiasm.
