Macclesfield Museums creative workshops

Macclesfield is famous for something special all around the world¬†ūüĆé

And no, it's not 'just' silk! If you were a fashion designer 100 years ago, the Macclesfield stripe could have won you a 'best dressed award' - just like a pair of your favourite Nike trainers today. We've partnered with Macclesfield Museums so you can turn yourself into a mini fashion icon of the 1920s - 40s, by learning the famous weaving techniques of Macclesfield. 


Tuesday 26th October, 1.30pm - 4pm. 


Paradise Mill, Macclesfield 

How do I get there? 
Macclesfield is lucky enough to have quite a few museums. For this event, you need to make your way to Paradise Mill - it's just off Churchill Way, next to The Silk Museum.

What's really involved? 
Learning to weave the Macclesfield Stripe and a tour of Paradise Mill. Staff from Peaks & Plains will also be there to talk about any questions you have about your home.

How much does it cost? What do I need?
Absolutely nothing. Let's celebrate the history of our community by having  fun. For free. The only requirement is that you live in one of our homes.
