About thread…a festival of textiles

thread is an opportunity to join with other textile enthusiasts for a sociable & inspiring day out. Learn from the experts, try new techniques & enjoy a programme of workshops for all & a series of talks, exhibitions and demonstrations from professionals. Visitors are invited to the curated marketplace for artisan fabrics and haberdashery to purchase for their own textile projects or buy unique handcrafted work from artists and makers. As with 2016’s festival, this year the day long event will also explore social and ethical elements to textiles.

Further details on thread will be added here in the forthcoming weeks.  And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date with news on the festival as it is announced.For those wishing to see last years exhibitors and programme this can be found at the craft archive here.
