Factory Reform

About 'Craft Made from Graft'

This Learning Journey - Factory Reform - emerged from a learning pack for teachers entitled 'Craft Woven From Graft' created by staff at Huddersfield Local Studies Library with funding from MLA Yorkshire. That pack dealt with the industrialisation of the woollen industry at this time, factory conditions, and especially the use of child labour. The pack is available from the Local Studies Library in Huddersfield. 

Several other Journeys have been created
as a result, all strongly linked to this one, including the cloth industry and weaving, factory reform, and Richard Oastler and his long campaign to improve the working conditions of children. Links to these other Learning Journeys have been provided below.
