Summer rushes

The summer materials are growing fast. Here are some harvests and experiments made over the last few weeks…

One handful of Common Rush Juncus effusus in the Lomond Hills


Rushes stripped down and left to dry…



Experimental string made with rushes and yarn waste…


Rosebay willowherb is just about ready for harvest. It smells lovely…


Willowherb string, willow bark and elm bark collected for a project.


More about these and the experimental yarn string in a future post!
