About the Course

You will also have the opportunity of working through the processes to produce fibre ready for spinning and/or cord and rope making. A chance to dress a distaff and have a go at drop spinning.

The day starts at 10.00am and finishes at 3.30pm and will include breaking, scutching, hackling in the morning followed by discussion at lunch time and more processing during the afternoon. Access to reference books; what innovative projects are going on and what flax can be used for. Fibre produced can be taken away. Seed and tooling available to purchase.
