Learn the relaxing art of botanical dyeing with natural dyer, Rebecca Desnos. Connect with nature and open your eyes to the colour potential of plants.

Discover how to: produce a wide palette of colours, including pink from avocados, yellow from pomegranates and coral from eucalyptus leaves; extract dye from just about any plant from the kitchen, garden or wild; use the ancient method of soya milk mordanting to achieve rich and long-lasting colour on plant fibres, such as cotton and linen; produce reliable colours that withstand washing and exposure to light.

To get you started we're including the Atelier natural dying kit which includes two mini-skeins of wool yarn, a silk scarf, a cotton bandana to dye, cochineal and osage orange to create color and alum for mordant.
