Interested in growing your own flax, but intimidating by the process of turning it into linen? This two-night intensive will cover the entire process of rippling, retting, breaking, scutching, hackling and finally some spinning time with EartHand’s 2018 crop. Participants will share the  processed stricks for their own future projects. Some time will be spent going over the basics of soil preparation, planting, and crop care. Instructor: Sharon Kallis
