Fabric Painting, Dyeing & Surface Decoration Books - "Natural Dyeing" Kathryn Davey NEW (2)
Natural Dyeing reveals the endless possibilities of plant-based dyes and how they will inspire you to give old garments a new lease of life.
The book 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. 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 colour into your cushions.
Kathryn sells her products throughout the world and runs workshops in her native Ireland.
