The Natural Dyer’s Almanac


The Natural Dyer’s Almanac

The Natural Dyer’s Almanac is a book that I have written to teach you, step by step, month by month how to dye with plants. It’s written in a friendly, experiential way which enables you to develop your skills and learning as you go. By the end of the year you will have a full, basic knowledge of common dye plants and dye products, and be able to continue as a hobby dyer or develop further to build your knowledge.

The book is packed with information and interesting facts, lots of photos and plenty of advice. Think of it as borrowing my dye notebook and having me stand beside you as you learn.
