Dressed in hemp!

This event is in English

Up until the 19th Century, the use of hemp textile was very common. Having dissapeared for some time, hemptextile is on it’s way back. However, to process the strong hempfibers into fabric is quite a difficult process. How is hemp yarn made, and what are it’s special qualites?

This impressive programme will interest anyone who wants to learn more about hemp textile.

To spice up the evening, there will be a panel of textile / hemp experts to ask in depth questions and test the quality claims!

Prior to this Hemp Meetup, we organize a hemp market with a lot of hemp products ranging from food to textiles. In between, you can enjoy a fair&tasty dish of the day in FabCafé ‘Ons Eten’.
