Learn how to transform locally foraged wild plants, garden produce and recycled food and plant waste into dyes and inks with Botanical Inks. The book shows you how to extract environmentally sustainable colour from the landscape and use it to create natural dyes for textiles, clothing, paper, canvas and more.

The book covers dying and surface application techniques, including bundle dying, Shibori tie-dying, Hapa Zome, indigo sugar vat, wood-block printing, screen printing, pot dying and ice flower dying. And it also shows you how to turn your newly-printed material into wonderful projects, from block-printing wrapping paper to bundle-dying a scarf.

The process of turning plants into print can help you reconnect with nature, find a creative outlet and develop a mindful sense of presence. It also promotes an awareness of sustainable practices and how to reduce our impact on the planet.
