|My dye shelf. It's cute, but it should be BIGGER!|
It's a lot of fun and I feel like a witch, stirring these big pots with twigs that I've found outside. In German we would say it's like a "Hexenküche" - a "witch kitchen". It's also really meditative.
|Omg, I couldn't get enough of those scarves. |
Unfortunately they are silk and I don't don't use silk, coz not vegan.
I've tried a couple of things, but don't have the time right now to commit myself to it more. Eventually I want to sell a couple of things - clothes that I've found or made, dyed with natural plants.
At the weekend I vistited one of my friends in her dye garden. She started it together with a couple of other women at the Allmende Gardens at the Tempelhof Airport which closed down only a few years ago.
It was the most beautiful late summer day (you get a lot of sun at the airport field when it's sunny, coz no trees!) and the beautiful, natural coloured textiles looked so vibrant flowing in the wind. I don't even think the pictures do them justice. They looked amazing!!
I was very impressed what these ladies had done in half a year. Really great!
And I also got some tickseed seeds, which I'm trying to grow on my window sill now.
Aren't those colours beautiful?
