WOVEN, supported by the Creative Economy Team at Kirklees Council and by festival curators HATCH, will be bringing a series of events to the district to celebrate. Some of the events during the week-long festival include mill walks, tours and open days; pop up exhibitions, events across theaters, galleries and museums with local artists, music and film makers; markets and craft maker markets as well as events for businesses, families and local schools. Also including ‘The Big Knit’ where the community will be encouraged to ‘Yarn Bomb’ local landmarks across Kirklees.
