Celebrating 5 years of Yorkshire’s original wool festival!

With early-bird tickets from £3, Leeds Wool Festival is the best value crafting event of the year.

We have it all, from a packed crafting market to expert demonstrations, talks, performances, screenings in a 1920s cinema, a pop-up tea rooms, cute alpacas and more! 

This year enjoy a tipple from a mobile gin palace, watch vintage film The Cotton Queen and expert demonstrations of rug-making, spinning and felt-making.

This Yorkshire institution pops up at the Grade II listed Armley Mills, once the world’s biggest woollen mill. Discover stories of loom to limelight in the glamorous new Queens of Industry exhibition and take a tour with our curators. Explore galleries devoted to tailoring, see original working looms and a special display from the International Felt-making Association. 

Whether you’re a natty knitter or crackers about crochet, this is a great day out for all ages!
