Join us for a Textiles Taster day to discover the world of British textiles and the wide – ranging roles available in the industry. From aeroplanes to headphones and cars to fashion, textiles feature in everything!

Textiles Taster gives you the chance to visit local manufacturing businesses such as John
Spencer Textiles and Community Clothing, tour the factory floor, meet apprentices and staff and get hands on with a variety of creative textile activities, as well as hear from industry speakers such as Patrick Grant from the BBC’s ‘Great British Sewing Bee’.
Developed in partnership with our industry partners and stakeholders with support from The Cotton Industry War Memorial Trust, The Drapers Company and the London Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers.
