Book Description

This beautifully-illustrated book takes you on a botanical journey through the year, showing you how to create colourful and environmentally-friendly plant dyes. You’ll learn sustainable methods of growing and harvesting plants; the tools and techniques required to extract dye; which fabrics and yarns to choose; and the simple method of using soya milk as a fixative, to ensure rich and long-lasting colours.

The book includes easy-to-follow tutorials explaining how to make four stunning pieces using seasonal plant dyes: a linen cushion cover, embroidered picnic blanket, hot water bottle cosy, and a quilt.

Alicia Hall discovered plant dyeing in a horticultural book whilst working as a gardener, and she drew on her education in fashion design to experiment with plant dyes and textiles, creating colourful dyes using the plants that grew in the gardens that she worked in. Since growing her passion into a thriving small business, Alicia now spends her time cooking up plant dyes and making textile products in her home studio in the heart of the UK's Wiltshire countryside, where she lives with her husband and son.
