Busy Summer

After spending three month working in Frankfurt, I returned home to prepare myself for my herbalist exam.
It will take place on the 13th and 14th of September. For my final project, I decided to dye wool with wildflowers, a very nice and satisfying experience, full of surprises...

In the photo above you can see one of my experiment in dying wool with Corn Poppy flowers...
And I prepared a herbary with 60 pressed flowers. This is the Yellow Sweet Clover (Melilotus officinalis):

And here one of my results with dying wool with Common Horsetail (Equisetum arvense):

The wool on the left is Alpaca, whereas the other ones are simple sock wool (sheep wool).
I'm looking forward to dying wool with garden plants and mushrooms next time...
