About the Event
Come and help harvest our flax and find out how to turn it into cloth!
Learn and get involved with our new community project to grow your own clothes.
As part of a new joint community project between Tecstiliau and Tyddyn Teg we are reconnecting with the land, our clothing, and our community to grow our own cloth in a regenerative way - from soil, to seed, to fibre, to garment.
Whether you are a keen gardener, garment maker, or just plain curious about where your clothes come from, come get involved! Learn about the project, how we can take flax to fabric, and have a fun day on the flax field getting to know the community.
