Exhibitions and Events at the museum

Stained Glass  – Keith Kemp

We are delighted to invite master stained glass craftsman Keith Kemp back to the museum after his very interesting sessions last year.
On Saturdays 13th and 20th July 2024, he will be demonstrating how to make a stained glass window. He will be showing how to cut glass and how to lead the pieces together to make a complete panel and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Keith has been making stained glass panels for 39 years, mainly new commissions and repairs for private homes, but also for churches including the west window of York Minster. He has also been involved with some large projects in the Middle East. He will be showing how he cuts the glass and lead for a design, and how he pieces them together to make a complete panel.
All are welcome. Admission Adults £5, Concessions £4, Children Free.
We are open every Saturday 10am to 4pm, and also open on Thursdays in the school holidays.

New Bobbin Trail

Why not visit Calderdale Industrial Museum in 2024, we are open from Saturday 6th January 2024 and have a new “Bobbin Trail” around the museum. Bobbins are used to weave cloth which was a very important industry in Calderdale. Take our trail to find out more about other trades and industries that were in this area. There are pictures of bobbins hidden in the museum. Every time you find one there are questions to answer. One set of questions our very young visitors may enjoy or if you like a challenge you can answer the more challenging set (or even both!). If you enjoy the trail and would like a bobbin of your own, we have a wide range of toys and gifts made from bobbins in our shop.


Yorkshire through Lens and Brush

– A Respective of Photographs and Artwork by Terry Sutton

Terry Sutton has been capturing the changing lives and scenery of West Yorkshire for more than sixty years. We are delighted to present a retrospective of his vast output of photographs, sketches and paintings. In the 1970’s he began a series of illustrations based on photographs of the relentlessly changing industrial landscapes of what was once the “industrial West Riding”. Cinemas, chapels, railway stations, warehouses, mills and other buildings were abandoned and left for years to fall into dereliction. To many, these once important servants of our communities became eyesores, for Terry, the textures, colours and strange beauty provided inspiration for his first book, Yesterday’s Yorkshire – A Celebration of the Industrial West Riding published in 2001. His second book  Hard Graft – Yorkshire at Work pays tribute to Yorkshire’s rich heritage of craftmanship and industrial achievement.
