    Story

    Show your support by a donation to Farfield Mill - a Unique and Special Place

    About Our Farfield Mill

    Nestling between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, and in the shadow of the glorious Howgill fells, Farfield Mill provides access to high-quality art and crafts as well as the complete history of weaving.

    A Community of Artists and Crafts People

    It is 25 years since the Mill was rescued from destruction and turned into a thriving community of crafts people and artists including weavers, painters, quilters and jewellers. There are now 24 separate artists and craft studios where you can watch the artists and weavers working.

    A Place to Inspire and Amaze

    The history of weaving is demonstrated through the operation of the original power looms and the demonstrations of hand weaving. The mill also contains several large galleries with ever changing artists exhibitions.

    New trustees were appointed in January and want to turn the Preservation Trust into a co-operative Community Benefit Society. This would allow the community to become member owners and invest in Farfield Mill’s potential

    Why your gift is needed today

    Funds from this will not come on stream before April 2018. In the meantime we need £25,000 to carry out essential repairs and ensure we can carry on.

    Please give generously

    Your gift, however large or small, will help us ensure that our community, which is the life of the mill , can continue to inspire and delight all who have a passion for arts and crafts. 

    Without your help the mill will be lost forever.

    Further Information

    Please contact Clare or Susannah by email ( centremanager@farfieldmill.org) , or call them on +44 (0)15396 21958 .

    Further information is also available on our website.

    Thank you.
