It is ironic that in a society obsessed with materialism we have become increasingly detached from the material world. The Stroud  hempery uses industrial hemp (cannabis sativa) as a vehicle to re-evaluate this relationship.

The Stroud Hempery acts as a national centre for hemp in the UK. The guild, formed around a new route linking canal and town, acts as a point of contact & education. The mill honours Stroud’s cloth making heritage whilst the research facility explores new applications for the plant.
