Nettle workshop (£65) – Sunday 19 May
Harvest some fresh nettles and learn about their folklore. You’ll learn how to make nettle fibre, turn it into string and how to spin it on a drop spindle. You’ll also have a chance to dye using nettles and make simple medicine. A nettle-based lunch cooked over an open fire is included.
The workshop runs from 10am to 4pm. While the workshop includes a nettle-based lunch you may want to bring your own picnic or packed lunch to enjoy outside or around the fire, depending on weather. Workshops will always run no matter the weather, so please dress appropriately.
