Nettles Still got the Edge – Brigitte Kaltenbacher

Nettles Still got the Edge; The re-discovery of a sustainable fibre source: traditional and contemporary nettle weaving

with Brigitte Kaltenbacher.  2.45pm start

Join Brigitte as she takes us on a fascinating journey starting with a fairy-tale featuring ancient crafts and woodland magic that transform the humble nettle into a source of silky, golden fibre.

Brigitte will not only demonstrate how to extract fine fibre from nettles, she will also explain its benefits as a sustainable fibre source and show samples of her nettle weaving, from simple designs to those inspired by haute couture designers such as Coco Chanel.
