Learn about hand processing flax into linen and local growing efforts in cloth micro-production. Sample using a drop spindle, processing wild plant fibres ready for spinning and try out the walking wheel for spinning fibre. Sample spinning undercoats of local dogs or horse mane hair from the Racetrack and weave an addition into the Earth loom.
This is a drop-in open ended activity that will begin winding down at 8pm. Picnic dinners are encouraged, wear a sunhat or other weather appropriate attire- we are outside under shelters rain or shine.
