This book is part of the popular Textile Handbook series and is a
complete how-to-do-it guide to obtaining a wide range of colours from
natural dyes. It is suitable for the beginner as well as for the more
experienced textile artist. The dyeing can be done in the home or the
classroom with plants from the garden or bought in a local store. It is
a comparatively cheap process that will also satisfy the craft person's
desire to use 'green' methods in their work.



Most books on natural dyes only deal with wool for weaving. This book
will also cover yarns for embroidery. The book will be filled with
step-by-step sequences, useful tips and the author's own work to show the amazing variety of colours that can be
achieved by using natural materials. All in all, this is a
comprehensive guide to using natural dyes that will also be an
inspiration to all who want to explore the use of these dyes in
imaginative ways.

 

Linda Rudkin is a professional textile artist who specialises in

magazines such as Embroidery, Workbox and Stitch, and she lectures and gives demonstrations at various art colleges.
