About the event
The Textile Industry is the second largest polluter, and yet natural fibres can be grown and are biodegradable. Local weaver Alice Hume From Soil to Cloth project will develop urban textile gardens in Portsmouth, with a new collection of work and environmental research. Be part of a new slow textiles movement, volunteer to grow linen and natural dyes or join a free workshop.
Help prepare the soil bed and plant the flax seeds which will be processed into linen this summer. To be involved you must register as a volunteer with Southsea green. Please bring along your own gardening gloves and wear old clothes. More about the project here - www.vanderhume.co.uk/fromsoiltocloth
