About the event
Join us at the Natural Fiber Lab at Smokey House Center (located near the farm stand) for a discussion of the processes involved in turning locally grown plant fibers into finished cloth. Participants will get a hands-on introduction to the tools and materials used in transforming bast fibers (flax and hemp) from raw straw to spinnable fiber, spun yarn, and woven cloth. Smokey House Center's Natural Fibers researcher Andrea Myklebust will give participants a tour of the Natural Fibers Lab, and will discuss her ongoing research work with UVM's fiber hemp program.
Explore Smokey House Center this summer with our free informational workshop series. With just under 5,000 acres of forest and farmland there is a lot to discover here from bird species, to mushrooms, to forest trails, wildlife and even the night sky. All are welcome to join, see individual Facebook events for specific information on dates and times.
