From the Festival of Making website:
Makers Dozen have been touring the factories of Pennine Lancashire, taking in the manufacturing magnificence at Star Tissue, Silent Night, Roach Bridge Tissues and WEC Group and other to find the spirit of the endangered crafts that built the factories. In their workshops you’ll find the pride, ingenuity and timelessness of rare making methods and get to grips with the materials and techniques yourself.
As part of a research team within Makers Dozen I developed and delivered a free public workshop inspired by Arts and Crafts wallpaper design. The Festival of Making team have estimated that around 4,000 visitors engaged with Makers Dozen workshops during the festival.
