Synopsis

Wild Colour How to Grow, Prepare and Use Natural Plant Dyes by Dean Jenny

Jenny Dean's Wild Colour is the modern classic title on traditional dyeing methods. A celebration of the wealth of natural dyes that can be obtained from over 60 species of plants from common marigolds to rhubarb. Part one introduces the concept of natural dyeing and demonstrates how easy it is to get started. All the techniques are explained with step-by-step sequences and photographs. Colour charts help you to work out which method is best for each dye plant and material. Part two reveals the wide range of plants that you can use for natural dyeing. Colour swatches show the tried and tested range of colours you can extract from each plant.
