Brigitte Kaltenbacher – Nettle demonstration
Making textiles from nettles is a long lost art, but Brigitte will demonstrate that with a few simple tools – and a certain amount of patience – almost anyone can extract fibre from garden nettles. She will also show examples of spun nettle yarn and woven nettle tweeds.
Brigitte is a recent MA graduate from the UCA Farnham, department textiles. Her work focuses on handwoven sustainable textiles.
Brigitte will be running demonstrations throughout the day.
