British Textile Biennial
We’re delighted to share that we’ve been successful in receiving further funding for our Homegrown/Homespun project.
The funding from The National Lottery Community Fund, the largest funder of community activity in the UK, will focus on supporting a long term, sustainable homegrown textile and clothing system with the communities across East Lancashire.
Homegrown/Homespun is a collaboration between Super Slow Way, designer Patrick Grant, his brand Community Clothing and North West England Fibreshed. It is an innovative, regenerative natural textile and clothing project, which has far reaching benefits for the environment and nature, for the health and cohesion of the community, and for the stimulation of a local green economy along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal corridor in #eastlancashire
We’ll be sharing news about growing sites and open days in the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out!
