Pennine Lancashire is shaped by textiles, they are woven through our social and urban fabric. By the end of the 19th century the area was producing 85% of the world’s cotton goods.
Drawing on this rich heritage, Fabrications is the UK’s first festival that celebrates and explores textiles and the textile industry through the eyes of artists. Taking place in galleries, museums and former textile mills across Blackburn, Hyndburn, Burnley and Pendle throughout September, the festival presents something for everyone – with exhibitions, residencies, major art installations and performances, a symposium, workshops and a craft fair hosted by Selvedge magazine.
See you there!
