Keighley people are being invited to decorate Yorkshire-themed bikes with wool.

Artist Cassandra Kilbride will run a workshop in Haworth next month as part of her Woolly Bike Trail.

Participants will be inspired by Yorkshire literary greats as they decorate one of the ten bikes involved in the project.

They will draw on everything from the Bronte sisters’ work to Yorkshire-set novels like The Secret Garden and Dracula.

The Woolly Bike Trail is part of the Yorkshire Festival 2014, the arts festival that precedes the Grand Depart.

The bikes will be exhibited through the summer in Huddersfield and Sheffield, then will return to the places they were created for display for further 12 months.

The workshop runs at the Bronte Parsonage Museum on May 27 and 28 from 10.30am to 1pm, and 1pm to 3.30pm. Visit yorkshireswoollybikes.co.uk for details of how to book workshop places.
