Seed to Seam #1

  • September 28, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
  • | Free
  • Brockwell Park Greenhouses, London
Seed to Seam #1

Our aim is to grow, dye, design and make a linen garment entirely in London. We’re getting plots big and small all over the city to grow a patch of flax – the plant that becomes linen.

Our next step is to pool our harvests and come together at community events to turn it into thread for our community garment.

If you’d like to get involved, get in touch with us at cordwainersgarden@gmail.com and let us know what you’re interested in or how you can help. We need breakers, hecklers, scutchers and spinners. (No previous experience required!) We also need people to tweet, pour tea, make cakes and take photographs and update Facebook. We’d also like to stream the event live on the internet so if you can help there, we’ll be able to include people who can’t make it to the workshops.

Directions: The Greenhouses are located within Brockwell Park in Lambeth. The site is in the middle of the park, roughly between the children’s paddling area and the tennis courts). The nearest train station is Herne Hill, the closest tube is Brixton (Victoria Line). Busses 3, 196 and 322 run from outside Brixton station to the corner of the park.
