Sue’s Dyeing to be Different Book

3 Dyes & 3 Mordants, Fibre and Instructions

33.00

A book by Sue that combines years of her experience in the art of dyeing with natural dyes.


This book is easy to follow with concise instructions on how to get the best results.


It is especially useful as rather than hours of boiling on a hob a microwave does the job, mordanting and dyeing, in minutes.


We also offer the book along with 3 Mordants and 3 Dyestuffs and 150g of wool fibre. A great way to start your Natural Dyeing adventure.

IMPORTANT

Care must be taken when using Natural, Acid, Reactive or Vat dyes in the home. Any utensils used for dyeing must not be used for any other purpose. Always use dyes and mordants to exhaust before disposing of them. Never pick wild plants, lichen or flowers for dyeing. Take extra care when dyeing and children are nearby.

Learn to use Natural Dyes on a  One to One Course at HILLTOP Locker Hook rug using fibres dyed with Natural Dyes.

This Colour Wheel can be very useful when planning projects with colour. Colours opposite each other are complimentary those next to each other are analogous. Colour harmony creates and delivers visual interest and a sense of order.


A colour circle based on red, yellow and blue is traditional in art. The first in circular form was developed by Sir Isaac Newton in 1666.
