Tell us what you thought about WOVEN 2023

On 9 July, the WOVEN 2023 festival came to a close after a five-week celebration of the rich legacy and promising future of textiles in  Kirklees. This year’s programme, centred around the theme of sustainability, engaged over 15,000 people with a diverse programme ensuring the continued growth of essential textile skills. Initiated and funded by Kirklees Council, WOVEN is owned by everyone, including community groups, textile businesses and educational organisations across the district.

The festival worked with 27 schools, had over 118 events (72 were community led) including seven yarn bombs, five exhibitions, one makers’ market, and a range of industry tours and talks, together creating a truly unique programme, for Kirklees, by Kirklees. Find out more on our longer news post.

The WOVEN website continues to provide free evergreen resources and activities to ensure the passion for sustainability and Kirklees’ textiles legacy lives on past the festival dates.
