MFA Embellishment Process

Yarn #1

In my past work with plants I have always grown swatches on flat surfaces where the roots grow into a nice bottom layer all feeding into themselves.

I decided that the coming together of both roots and yarn would be grown vertically, so the first experiment starts.

I knit a small sleeves that I filled with seeds.

Yarn- 100% Wool

Seeds- Wheatgrass- Whole Foods (Hard Red Winter Wheat Berries)
