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.
