HLF-projectUlita and South Leeds City Learning Centre

‘World Textiles and Yorkshire: Past and Future’ is an eighteen-month project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, undertaken by ULITA and their associated partner South Leeds City Learning Centre of Education Leeds.The aim of the project is to encourage school children and adults, of all ages and backgrounds to increase their knowledge of textiles. With the emphasis on design and “making”, and with guidance from specialist tutors, one hundred and seventy students researched, designed, and manufactured items. Selections of these are presented in this exhibition, with each display cabinet highlighting the various ways in which the project was interpreted by different groups.
