What's on

Sunday 22nd August 2021, 11:00am

Introduction to Nettles

Tortworth Arboretum

11am-4pm, £30–£45

Here at HoneyWoods we are a bit nuts about nettles and we want to share out passion for this much-maligned plant!

Join Bec for a day of exploration into the world of the nettle. With a long history of uses as a food and a fibre, there is lots to learn, and we will offer you the opportunity to try out different ways to process and use the plant, as well as seeing it growing around the arboretum in full summer glory.

We will be making nettle cordage, looking at medicinal uses for the plant, finding out how it grows, and perhaps use some to spin up into yarn.

A simple vegetarian lunch and hot drinks are provided, please bring any cakes and snacks you might like to share.

For full details click below.

Directions: Please head to GL12 8HH on sat nav, towards the Tortworth Court Hotel. As you turn on to the driveway to the hotel, after a couple of passing places you will come to a green metal gate set back on the right hand side just before a stone building. Turn into this gate and park up.
