Nettle demos with Brigitte Kaltenbacher

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.
