Seasonal Plant Dyes by Alicia Hall travels on a journey through the year, creating colourful and environmentally friendly dyes using the different plants available in each season, and then using them in a beautiful textile project.
At the beginning of the book there is practical advice on the best types of fabrics to use with plant dyes, details how to help the dyes to stick to fabrics and tips to help the reader harvest dye plants sustainably without impacting the environment in a negative way.
The description of each dye plant includes detailed horticultural information on how to grow (or where to find in the wild) along with notes on the best way to harvest, ensuring that the plant can be used year after year.
Easy to follow tutorials on extracting the dye colour from each plant are followed by instructions on how to dye fabrics and yarn with the plant dyes.
Each season includes a project that utilises a collection of dyes from that season, bringing them together to create a beautiful textile project.
Author Alicia Hall draws on her professional gardening experience to cook up plant dyes and produce textile products in her home in Wiltshire, UK.
