Explorations in Kudzu Fiber
Sep 21 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm
Local Cloth

Kudzu is actually tremendously useful, and the time will come (sooner rather than later) when we will appreciate that. Young leaves are delicious cooked like spinach, the flowers make a lovely jelly, and the vines themselves make durable cordage as well as fiber rivalling bamboo and hemp fibers now being used in everything from carpeting to bedsheets and clothing. If you’re interested in exploring options, you can hook up with Asheville educators here.
