Rebecca is a UK based natural dyer, as well as a designer, maker, writer and publisher. In 2016 she published the book ‘Botanical Colour at Your Fingertips’ and has independently published the magazine ‘Plants are Magic’.

” I am vegan and my textiles practice is a complete expression of my personal philosphy. The fabric that I use is always made from plants (my favourites are organic cotton and linen) and I forage for plants to make dyes and also use kitchen waste products, such as avocado skins and pomegranate skins.

My journey with natural dyes began several years ago when I started experimenting with plant dye extracts and I fell in love with the rainbow of colours that nature has to offer. After my son was born a few years ago, I started to look for a deeper connection with nature and stopped using powdered extracts and now only use whole plants. These days I’m less interested in repeating colours and more inspired by the colour potential from local plants.

I like to embrace the slow nature of the dyeing process. I enjoy going for walks with my son to collect dye plants then return home to see the colours that they will give in the dye pot. I’ve discovered that if I accidentally forget about a dye pot for several days, the colours are much deeper. Plant dyeing is a lovely craft to do as it fits in so easily with home life and there really are no mistakes to be made, just new experiences to be learnt from. “
