Textile Workshop | The Science of Plant Fibers
November 4 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm$16 – $20
What makes a plant viable to transform into a textile? Explore Grace Farms with Horticulture Advisor Kimberly Kelly in search of native plants that can be used for fabric, and learn why the textile industry is returning to native fibers for mass production.
Our hands-on Textile Workshops highlight the essential role textiles play in everyday life — from our clothes to our home and building interiors — and aim to educate about and inspire sustainable textile choices that are healthier for the environment and the garment supply chain.
Grace Farms is located at 365 Lukes Wood Road, New Canaan, CT 06840.
