early summer harvests



Summer has finally started here in my little Breton home ! I'm still experimenting a lot with fermentation dyeing and right now I'm harvesting everything that could be useful.

Have a look...



The front garden, which is mainly a herb garden.
I work with a lot of herbs,
for medicine, beverages, incense, food
and of course dyes...




Broad-leaved Dock roots




Zen
or the art of harvesting willow bark




and apple tree bark




clockwise: barks from oak, apple tree, willow and plum tree




a few fibers waiting to be dyed




some fallen Eucalyptus leaves
water from the river, common sorrel, wood ash
fermented
dyed
sheep wool, alpaca and silk yarn, paper thread



Thanks for visiting
