vert soi – étole.

I propose to spend a half day in nature, to reconnect with oneself and with Nature by means of contact print process. At the end of this shared moment, you go back with your own  bundle* …                                                               Which you will undo/unroll three weeks later…

I will provide the fabric that you will use. It will have been prepared to receive the dyeing and the different plants. Most of the time it will be a piece of silk, wool or a silk/wool blend, 200 x 70 cm in size.

*bundle : fabric on which you have gathered plants then rolled and tied .
