This workshop is part of Our Textile Town, supported by Padiham Townscape Heritage. Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth wanted to keep traditional textile skills alive and used her textile collection at Gawthorpe Hall ‘to show people how’. Join in our artist-led workshops and learn textile skills inspired by the textiles Miss Rachel made and collected from around the world.
