Angela loves to work with natural fibres – plants and flowers to create her fabrics – and all in her kitchen!
Using dyes from plants, flower and vegetables
Discover a whole new use for the plants and flowers in your garden and even the vegetables in your kitchen. Angela shows you some of the results from everyday items – daffodils, tulips, onion skips and rosehips for example – that give her fabrics that ‘special’ colour.
There is a degree of unpredicability as to the colour derived from these plants and vegetables but Angela feels that this is part of the joy of her work. – you will see how red tulips give her green fabric!!!
