Sunny Bank Mills

Farsley Town Street, Farsley, Leeds, LS28 5UJ

This workshop is for 1 adult and 1 teenager to attend together. You will collaborate to decide on a small project that you would both like to make together. For example this could be each working on a side of a cushion cover, a wall hanging, . You will each have your own loom meaning that you both get to experience working on the looms.

Our weaving tutor Agnis Agnis will guide you through the day, giving demonstrations as well as offering 1 to 1 support. This workshop may be of interest to those who are undertaking their GCSE or A-levels in Art/Design/Textiles or those who simply have a passion for making and crafting.

Adults are expected to join in the workshop and work together on the project with their teenager. Please note when booking you only need to book one place for the pair of you.


Things to bring

Yourselves, ideas , a packed lunch (there are also places to buy lunch in the mill and on Farsley Town Street.)


We will provide

Refreshments (drinks and cake!), materials and equipment.
