The idea of using the nature around has always been fascinating for me. That is why this course was an opening and an exciting experience. Seeing wool changing colour from a dull white to a more shiny and vivid colour was almost like magic, like a miracle caused by a plant or by a mushroom.
Each one had to mark his own yarn or wool. Not easy to recognise one's own after colouring :)
Do you think my Phoenicians ancestors used the same procedure when they extracted the purple dye from the Murex shell ? hmmm ! Something to reflect over!
Martha, the course leader, a beautiful dynamic woman in her 80's and still going on and on. She has a lot to give and we have a lot to learn.
... and the best part of the course, is a norwegian hotdog "pølse" warmed on coal and consumed in a fantastic norwegian scenery, in a wonderful norwegian summer day! "herlig" !!!
