Stop Wasting Your Time With Plants & Techniques That Don't Work


Are you unsure about the tools, equipment, or supplies you'll need to naturally dye or whether it will work? 


Have you tried natural dyeing, only to have your colours wash out or fade drastically? Or maybe they were weak or blotchy & you don't know why!


Are you unsure how to make your colours fix? Are you confused about all the different ways to do this? Have you heard about mordanting, and it makes your head hurt? 


Have you spent countless hours scouring the internet for tutorials or articles, hoping to learn everything you can about natural dyeing? 

Are you curious about the process but don't know where to start?

Do you want to give natural dyeing a go?

"it was a great experience, thank you so much! I hope to get around to much more dying now. I had never heard of modifying the colours before which really expands the realm of possibilities!


Imagine starting a new hobby: being able to extract dye from plants & naturally dye anything you want in any colour of your choice!

You only need a pot, some plant material, something to dye, water, and a little patience. If you want to get serious you can purchase a few inexpensive powders to help your get brilliant results. This process doesn't have to be complicated or overwhelming. 

Natural dyeing is easier than you think!
