The Watershed is home to several organisations in Slaithwaite.
These include the charity Shabang! along with Impossible Theatre and Satellite Arts.
Originally a weaving shed, the old building was fully refurbished and now features a spacious activity studio with a wooden floor and balcony that overlooks the River Colne.
It also has a large meeting space and workshop called the Bobbin along with a multi-sensory soft room.
The Watershed hosts a wide range of practical arts workshops and training programmes from music to mosaics, filming to felt-making and singing to sewing.
Satellite Arts are founders of the Slaithwaite Moonraking Festival and creators of performing arts and music workshops while Impossible Arts carry out unique and imaginative work with disadvantaged communities and young people.
Shabang! are award-winning innovators of accessible arts for people with special needs.
Several organisations helped to fund the The Watershed when it was set up including the Arts Council, Sita Environmental Trust and Kirklees Council.
