The Wild Dyer:

A Maker's Guide to Natural Dyes with Projects to Create and Stitch (Hardcover)

by Abigail Booth

 

Dominique's Thoughts:

'This is without a doubt, one of my most beloved tomes on Natural Dyeing. It brilliantly guides both those new to dying with botanicals, and skilled fibre artists alike with beautiful, enchanting images and magnificent instruction. This is a volume that will be treasured for a lifetime'.

 

-

 

Learn how to forage for plants, prepare textiles for dyeing, and make your own mordant. Includes eight hand stitching projects from coasters to a patchwork blanket!

 

Fabrics colored with natural dyes have a beauty and subtlety all of their own. Onion and avocado skins, chamomile and birch bark, and nettles and acorns can produce lovely, ethereal colors and effects.

 

The Wild Dyer demystifies this eco-conscious art, focusing on foraging and growing dying materials; repurposing kitchen trimmings; making and using long-lasting dyes; and creating stitched projects.

 

Workspace setup, equipment, and fabric choices and care are all discussed. Beautiful photographs and easy-to-follow instructions illustrate how to make eight exquisite household items, from a drawstring bag to a gardener's smock and a reversible patchwork blanket.

 

The Wild Dyer is a complete guide for both beginners and experienced artists seeking to expand their knowledge of this increasingly popular craft.

    WILDWOOD is a grassroots apothecary and herb craft studio creating small-batch, healing care potions, infused with magic in the heart of Wellington County. 

     

    Unapologetically Analog. We embrace the old ways. Handcrafting our organic formulas slowly, and with the utmost of care, using the purest and most wholesome botanicals, rare essences, and house-distilled whole plant extracts. Our flora is wild gathered from hedgerows and tenderly dried from the rafters in our stone crofters cottage. No automation, no machines. Simple hand tools, carved wooden spoons, an heirloom mortar and pestle of worn stone, and pruning shears of burnished brass, stored in the whitewashed antique bakers cabinet in our stillroom.
