Hemp thatch + timber frame+ hempcrete
The Stroud hempery uses industrial hemp (cannabis sativa) as a vehicle to re-evaluate our relationship with nature and production.
The Stroud Hempery acts as a national centre for hemp in the UK, combining a hemp mill, tailors guild, research and educational facilities. 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.
