Natural dyeing is an ancient craft which was practised by most early civilizations. With increased awareness of environmental issues, this guide to natural dyeing will not only provide the craftsperson with an alternative to synthetic dyes, but is designed to encourage a resurgence of this traditional skill. The book contains instructions on: how to plan and grow your own dye garden; how to prepare plants and transform them into dye colours; how to colour yarns; how to space-dye yarns for multi-coloured effects; and how to pattern cloth by printing or painting with dyes, and using batik techniques. The book should be a useful source of information for craft dyers, textile students and anyone seeking a successful alternative to synthetic dyes. It should also be of interest to textile restorers and conservationists, and instrument and furniture makers and restorers.
