Join Sharon for a processing adventure from green nettles in early fall through to dogbane, milkweed and retted nettles as each fibre plant comes into season for gathering.

Members will be given directions and focus for harvesting a few stalks from various garden beds each month. A chance to observe the seasonal changes through the harvest times of various plants with useful fibres. Zoom session times will be used for fibre extraction and  processing  as well as demonstrations. Sessions will focus on material processing and conversations around what projects or experiments  might be exciting to try.
