A Kids’ Workshop with the artist Reto Pulfer

Learn to make dye out of plants! Autumn is colorful. In the workshop, its colors will be collected and brought along into winter. Using nettles, goldenrod, blackthorn and more,  plant dyes will be extracted and the plants' spiritual essences will leave traces on paper and fabric. Along the way, there will be many colors and hues beyond green!

A public programme for children ages 6 – 12.

Reto Pulfer
Plants play an important role in Reto Pulfer's work. The artist disassembles stinging nettles into their constituent fibers and spins threads, then dyes fabric out of which cavernous installations, music, and performances emerge. In 2020, he published his second novel 'Gina, ein zuständiger Roman' ('Gina, A Responsible Novel'; Bom Dia Books, in German) whose protagonist transforms into a kind of stinging nettle plant in a post-apocalyptic landscape.
