Hazel reviewed: Nettle Fibre Workshop

"I can wholeheartedly recommend BeeKayMakes workshop. It was a well organised and extremely satisfying day, with the right amount of intervention to ensure that everyone was able to succeed and produce some nettle fibre."

Elena reviewed: Nettle Fibre Workshop

"This masterclass is an ode to heritage, that stands behind us in cloth. One will not only learn an ancient sustainable craft, achievable even for complete beginners, which is already amazing for just six hours of your life. Brigitte's natural teaching ability and passion are also a testament to practice based on meticulous research and scholastic knowledge, which she shares generously."

Julie reviewed: Nettle Fibre Workshop

"Excellent workshop which leads you gently through the process of making a workable fibre from the common nettle. Brigitte has a fabulous knowledge of fibres and has created the day in a very logical way. Patiently leading you from picking your own nettles through the various processing stages so you leave with samples from each stage. Brigitte is so inspirational with her passion. She also brings a collection of items and fibres both made by her or obtained during her research. All of which left me wanting to learn more"
