9 sessions First Tuesday of the Month*, from March through September, 6-8pm Plus additional retting & processing dates Trillium North Park – except first class (location TBA) Max 15 $220 (*Tues April 10th, second Tues in April) Do you have an interest in gardening and textiles? This program is a chance to grow your own small flax crop for linen, learn how to spin with a drop spindle, have support through the process and share results with others in the group. Meeting once a month, we’ll cover spinning, soil preparation, sowing, weeding, harvest, and how to process the flax straw into linen. Flax for linen is an easy-to-grow crop requiring full sun and 100 days from seed to harvest. Soil, water, light, microclimate and processing all affect the quality and feel of the resulting linen.

First four sessions include seasonal instructions for month ahead and spinning time. The final three sessions take participants through the process of harvest, retting, rippling, breaking, scutching and hackling. Cost includes seeds, a drop spindle, local linen fibre and Taproot Nova Scotia's fibre for workshop spinning and access to equipment at processing times. Seeds provided for a plot size up to 16 ft sq per person.

Thanks for everyone's patience as I learn the ropes of creating FB events. I've updated the description and links in the Fb event, and here is the web page with the registration link to Paypal:
Sorry, don't have wordpress.

Can you let us know the overall cost and whether it's okay to attend some but not all sessions? Also I could share some growing space in my garden.
Some inspiration... here's me finishing the last of my home-grown, hand-spun linen in the quiet of a foggy New Years
I am interested but can't get to the tickets. The link just takes me to my own blog.
The link for tickets doesn't seem to be working. What is the ticket cost going to be?
