Visit the Sunny Bank Mills Archive and spend an afternoon weaving on one of our traditional handlooms

This day workshop is aimed at those who are fascinated by the history of Sunny Bank Mills and textile heritage. The morning will be spent exploring the archive, with a tour from Archive Curator, Rachel Moaby. You will have a private group tour of the archive, with a chance to learn more about the cloth that used to be produced at Sunny Bank Mills. There will be plenty of time for asking your own questions as well as exploring this unique textile collection.

In the afternoon you will then have the opportunity to have a go at weaving on the looms within the twisting gallery, producing a small sample of cloth inspired by your visit to Sunny Bank Mills Archive.

Timings: Meet in the gallery at 10:00 with refreshments
