“We Play in Time” will be a brand new quilt designed by local makers to celebrate the legacy of Dobcross Silver Band. One hundred individually designed woollen squares will be sewn together live on Saturday 15th June 2019 at the Weavers Factory in Saddleworth
What’s it about?
As part of Simon Buckley’s ‘We Play In Time’ exhibition at the Weavers Factory, the theme of the quilt will be Brass Band music, the village of Dobcross, the role Brass Band music has played in British history and what it means to you.
