Fabric of an area is captured

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: The artwork The artwork

Haworth residents teamed up with craft workers from across the South Pennines to create a piece of art capturing the area’s “true fabric”.

The Textile Tale project, commissioned by rural regeneration agency Pennine Prospects, saw artists working with people from Haworth and neighbouring towns to create a colourful textile artwork, which is almost two metres wide.

Heather-strewn hills and moorland, millstone grit, and chimney stacks are among the characteristic features and scenes depicted. A variety of techniques were used to create the piece, including embroidery, felting, knitting, silk painting and crochet.

Haworth’s contribution was co-ordinated by professional artist Jo Whitehead.
