Jane Howard reviewed: Nettle Fibre Workshop

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was excellently planned, incredibly informative, and very well executed, with an engaging and eclectic content. Totally recommend. Thank you very much for starting my journey, I hope our nettle paths will cross again. One suggestion …. a welcome (grounding) hot drink on arrival would be nice. "

"Thank you for taking the time to write a review! It is lovely to hear that you enjoyed the workshop :) Thank you also for your your suggestion to offer teas and coffees earlier in the day. We usually offer a cuppa after return from foraging, but mentioning this option on arrival is a fab idea. Thank you! "

"A really informative course that I very much enjoyed. Lots of excellent information on both picking and processing nettles and also turning them into cord and thread. It was also well paced and never felt rushed. "

Lucy and Bethany reviewed: Nettle Fibre Workshop

"Interesting and fun course, covered the topic well given the time frame and was very informative. A bit more info on the carding would have been useful as I don't think anyone was familiar with it at all, but it was overall a good introduction. Many thanks :) "

BeeKayMakes responded:

"Hi Lucy and Bethany, thank you for taking the time to write a review, much appreciated! It was great to have you both on the workshop :) I am so happy that you enjoyed 'nettling' for a day. Yes, we did cover a lot of textile techniques that day and hand carding is a bit tricky. However, your carded nettle fluff looked great, so you did it very well! I hope you will continue to have nettle fun in the future :) Bee 🌿🌿"

"A fascinating, inspiring and thoroughly enjoyable day. We packed a lot in and the teaching and guidance was excellent. I have started foraging for nettles for my own projects, and would highly recommend this course."
