Working with green nettles – no retting

A short film demonstrating how to extract strong, fine fibres from ‘green’ nettle plants to create thread. It also looks back into time and explores how our Neolithic ancestors may have been processing nettles to extract fibre for textiles. Allan processes the green nettles ‘wet’, i.e. directly or very shortly after collecting.

Connecting through craft

Hot off the press: Allan has been featured on ‘A tactile life’, a website that brings together  a ‘community of makers and hands-on humans’

Read the inspiring stories of our ever-growing community of makers and hands-on humans, and find out how to support their work
or begin your own journey towards developing your unique crafts and a tactile way of life.
