We spent the day yesterday in Roberts Park, Saltaire, as part of a personal development day for Year 7 students at Titus Salt School. The day was designed so that students at the school could learn about the textile heritage of Saltaire, and about the dyeing process in a fun hands on way. As part of the experience students had a heritage walk around the village, planted dye plants in the park that will become part of the permanent display, and designed and dyed fabric samples using dyes with a strong connection to Salts Mill and to the park itself.
