Lesson 5

1.30-2.30

History: To understand the significance of cotton spinning moving from being a hand craft, to being mechanised.

Up until the 1770s, cotton was spun into thin threads by hand. This all changed with a series of inventions, which led to cotton spinning becoming a mechanised process in factories. Spinning cotton using machines was far faster and cheaper than spinning cotton by hand, and cities such as Manchester made enormous amounts of money. One of the most important inventions was the water frame, invented by Richard Arkwright. He built the first modern factory in England and died one of the richest men in Britain.

Study two images of cotton spinning. The first image is of a pre-industrial spinning wheel – the classic ‘cottage industry’ model. The second image is of an early factory or ‘cotton mill’, with spinning mules at work.

 

Use the following links to help you understand the significance of a Spinning mule:

Independent Task

Compare the two ways of producing cotton, and explain why the mill is so much more efficient, produces so much more cotton, and most importantly allows for cotton to be much cheaper.

Answer the following questions

How was cotton spun before the Industrial Revolution?

Why was Arkwright’s invention so important?

What were the advantages of spinning cotton in a factory, using machines?

What do you think happened to the women who spun cotton on their spinning wheels?
