We are currently designing a project called Social Fabric.
This is based on creating a ‘crafting cafe’ scenario to draw people into contemporary textile and yarn crafting activities, whilst sharing the stories of people who have contributed to Bradford’s textile heritage over the years. The craft activities and the cafe further the QCHAP objective of taking our textile heritage forward in a way that promotes understanding of a shared dynamic culture.
We’re at an early stage of building the project structure, so that we can write funding applications for machinery, materials and some paid staffing for the Venue. We will aim to generate enough income to cover rent and overheads in the production of textile and yarn items for sale. Watch out for pilot activities with the longer-term aim of creating a self-sustaining social business with inter-generational benefits.
