WOVEN is a celebration of innovation in textiles across Kirklees and takes place from 8 to 16 June 2019.
Full details of events can be found on the WOVEN web site woveninkirklees.co.uk or you can follow the Twitter feed @WovenInKirklees.
If you would like to find out more about Huddersfield's cutting edge role in textile technology, we've made a copy of John Schofield's Cloth Finishing: Woollen and Worsted
(1927) available to read for free. This fascinating book covers the entire textile process, from wool scouring to cloth finishing.
We've launched an online shop where you can download high-resolution scans of historic items such as maps and photographs at reasonable prices. All income will be used to secure more content that can be added to the site.
