Woven in Kirklees

I was commissioned by Creative Scene to create a series of very short films about the textile industry in and around Kirklees as part of the Woven in Kirklees festival. Woven celebrated the innovation in textiles special to this part of West Yorkshire, once home to hundreds of woollen mills. I found that many companies, artists, charities and home crafters are continuing the spirit of innovation which led the West Riding to become one of the centres of the woollen industry. The films were screened across Kirklees during Woven, including in an old woollen mill – the perfect venue.
