Helmshore Textile Mill

Year 9 Textile & Design students had a fantastic experience visiting Helmshore Textile Mill.

The students had an interactive tour of the mill, showing them how different life was when the mills were fully operational.

The students took part in a range of activities, such as creating handmade yarn from sheep’s wool, feltmaking and interactive STEM activities which involved getting wet!

The students had lots of fun and will be able to put what they learnt to good use in their Textile & Design class.
