Pigments from Plants 


Natural dyes fit into three categories:  pigment extracted from plant, animal or  mineral.
From the past to present day transcending people and place,there is a wonderful array of methods for utilising and creating with natural dyes.
I am exploring common garden plants ,berries, and seaweeds specific to my local area to develop ink that I can tone, hand colour and print with .The exciting part of my research is to try out some tried and tested recipes  and collaborate and share information with others who are also looking at alternative ways of making and adding colour.
