If you’re coming by train or bus, it’s a short 15 minute walk up from Bradford Interchange. Head up Great Horton Road, past the college Hockney Building, which you can’t miss. Look for Carlton street on the right. There’s an Inkerwoven banner pointing down to the gallery.

There is limited visitor parking during the College day. Contact Helen Farrar (see above) to book in advance.
You don’t need to book if you’re visiting after 4.30pm or at the weekend.

To drive to the Car Park, you need to go round the back of the College.

Take Thornton Road out of Bradford - past Bristol St. Motors, past Arkwright Hall student flats - then turn left up Tumbling Hill Street (before the car wash) and left again round the flats.

There’s a barrier. If it’s down, press the College button and say you’re coming to visit the gallery, and they’ll let you past. (NB Press University button if no reply)

To find this route on online maps, search for Carlton Street.
The ‘Inkerwoven’ project was designed to create new and exciting works of contemporary print in response to the Bradford College Textile Archive collections for a major exhibition at the College’s Dye House Gallery, involving audiences in creative experiences along the way.

Members of Inkers have spent time researching the treasures of the Textile Archive and making new artwork in response. They have also created and delivered workshops and activities based around printmaking and textiles for all ages to enjoy.

We have shown tasters of our ongoing work in exhibitions at the Colne Valley Museum in Golcar, at South Square Centre in Thornton, and at Globe Arts In Slaithwaite.

The Final Exhibition is now open and runs until end of March 2023. You can browse our web-based Exhibition Catalogue below. Hard copies are available free at the gallery.
