Creative Workshop - The Shoddy Factory

Come along to a FREE, friendly and creative workshop to celebrate the past, present and future of textiles in Dewsbury!

Artist, Kerry Lemon and her team are building a GIANT 'Shoddy (recycled textiles) Factory' and need your help. Please bring a favourite item of cloth (clothing/ blankets/ cushions etc) with you ready to photocopy and we will all work together to weave a HUGE community paper quilt. You'll take home a beautiful handmade badge and the quilt will be exhibited at the college throughout February.
