Linen is perhaps the worlds oldest textile and is derived from varieties of the Flax plant. Here we take you on a sensory journey, describing the growing cycle, relaying the traditional stages of production and illustrating how this textile is manufactured today through prose, poem and song, hearing the clack of the factory floor and feeling the difference as you reach in to touch linen in its many forms.
Plant and Production is developed in collaboration with Clare McNicol, story teller.
