What must be considered when drying flowers?

– The right time to harvest: Flowers from the garden should be cut and hung before pollination. Flowers from the shop should be hung before they have faded.
– Drying: Hang the flowers upside down in a dry and dark place. Depending on the size of the flowers, tie into bunches of 10 to 15 stems. Remove the leaves if they give off too much moisture. Tie together with a string or a rubber band. Leave to dry for as long as possible, but at least three weeks.

Which flowers are particularly suitable for drying?

        

Basically, almost all flowers can be dried. Just try it out. You can find an overview of which varieties are particularly suitable for drying here.

When and where can I hand in my flowers?

Daily at the Kunsthalle. Please note our opening hours. We only accept dried flowers.

The artist

Rebecca Louise Law (*1980), who works exclusively with flowers, emphasises the importance of close, mindful contact with nature for the human experience in our fast-paced world. For her, two aspects are at the centre of her artistic work: the conscious and sustainable use of natural resources and to bring people together from the most diverse contexts. The installation Calyx will be a participatory work of art that connects people and nature in a respectful and communal way.
