This project empirically investigates the natural wool yarn dyeing techniques developed by the Hallstatt culture 3-4 thousand years ago using the overgrown plant life on a site in the outskirts of Brno. It could be said that the site speaks through the colours it produces and the site’s voice changes with the seasons. These colours, while varied and sometimes intense are very far from the colours we are accustomed to in today’s woollen clothing. A reflection on the truth of dyeing and its reasons. This project holds up a mirror to us and what we consider natural now and thousands of years ago.
