Flax to Linen – NEW!
Experience the process of taking recently harvested flax plants and magically changing them into linen thread. During this weekend course, you’ll process flax using three types of 19th century tools, then learn to spin it on a drop spindle. You’ll take home a ball of linen thread ready for knitting, needlepoint and maybe even sewing.
