Textile Banner Parade at Holmfirth Arts Festival 2019

Holmfirth Arts Festival 2019
A highlight of the Festival is the Textile Banner Parade created by Edgelands Arts with people from across the Holme Valley, in partnership with WOVEN, Kirklees Council’s inaugural Textile Festival.
This year’s parade, embracing the theme of Generations of Textile Innovation, will fill the streets of Holmfirth with a riotous carnival of colour and music. The parade is inspired by the PLACES which make up the Holme Valley, the PEOPLE who live in it, the TEXTILES which are manufactured here and the CRAFTS made in people’s homes.
Communities from across the Holme Valley have come together to learn new techniques and share existing skills, working with textiles of all types and colours. Fabrics include fine woolen cloth manufactured by Bower Roebuck in New Mill, hand painted landscapes on silk, long ribbon flags showing personal stories from the heart of the community, knitting and crocheting alongside ground-breaking fabrics created at the Centre for Textile Innovation in Huddersfield. Grass Man, a dancing, whirling performer wearing a suit of living grass will add to the carnival and musicians from Huddersfield Samba and HD9 Youth Brass Band will have you dancing in the street.

For opportunities to participate and contribute before parade day, please keep an eye on our website here: https://www.holmfirthartsfestival.co.uk/participate
