Dye Garden & Flax Growing

Growing Flax

Kent Cloth will be printing onto European linen and we are visiting our Europe to discover more about the production of linen. Kent is situated so close to the continent we are keen to find out how flax grows on Kentish soil.

We grew flax at the Pines Calyx,Rochester Art Gallery, Faversham, Stalisfield, Sevenoaks, Whitstable, Maidstone, and Canterbury. We visited Belgium to find out more about the production of linen. This video from Masters of Linen, CELC, (THE EUROPEAN CONFEDERATION OF FLAX AND HEMP) shows you the journey from seed to cloth.  www.mastersoflinen.com
