Flax Exchange is a year-long community project involving planting, harvesting, spinning, dyeing, designing, weaving, knitting, and crocheting flax; as well as upcycling and reinventing fabrics to create a new collection of garments which will be displayed in a final event with choreographed movement and live choral soundscape.
