Multi-Functional Crops and Creative Crop Uses - 6th September - 10am - 4pm
Historically, the role of crops in a farming system range from willow, rushes, flowers, beeswax, linen, wool, clothes, hemp rope, leather etc have always had a value as an additional farm income. With globalisation, these products are rarely produced at farm level. This Exchange will feature the uses of some of these products, such as willow and rushes. The project will be led by local artist Gerardine Wisdom who will discuss how these locally-grown crops and elements found on the farm can be converted into artistic and functional pieces that increase in value.
