Call for flax volunteers

We’re looking for a small group of volunteers who would like to learn about the different stages in turning flax from plant into linen thread through a series of demonstrations.

Over the course of a few weeks, you will learn about the different tools, processes, and history behind each stage of transformation, in a friendly and supportive group. From seed collecting to dew retting — this is a chance to participate in collective shared community learning, as we investigate how our ancestors in Linacre once created cloth many years ago, before the rise of the industrial revolution and mass production.

Small sessions will be held every could of weeks and you can do as much or as little work as you like. Fancy joining in? Email for more details about getting involved.
