    Find out more about this ancient custom by watching the well dressers at work. See how these intricate and detailed pictures can be made using only natural materials. First the boards – shallow wooden trays studded with nails – are filled with wet potters clay. Paper patterns of the design are laid on top and holes are made along each line like a dot-to-dot puzzle. Seeds are used to outline the design and the picture is filled in with petals, cones, seeds and other natural materials.
