Natural Dyeing: Learn How to Create Colour and Dye Textiles Naturally
Author: Kathryn Davey
Natural Dyeing reveals the endless possibilities of plant-based dyes and how they will inspire you for years to come.
Natural Dyeing explores the versatility of plant-based dyes, from understanding, choosing and preparing your fibre for dyeing to foraging for your dyes and the different dyeing methods used. You can then put your skills to the test with eight projects, including a Silk-dyed Bandana, Furoshiki-inspired bag and a Korean-style Cloth used to wrap gifts.
Natural Dyeing inspires you to experiment with natural dyes to give old garments a new lease of life, to create beautiful tablecloths and napkins from offcuts of linen and to inject a pop of color into your cushions.
Kathryn Davey is a self-taught designer and natural dyer based in Dublin, Ireland.
