The Wild Dyer is the new book by Textile artist Abigail Booth, one half of Forest + Found. A journey into the world of natural dyes, the book teaches you the foundations of working with natural dyes, will help you discover a colour palette local to you and guide you in producing simple and function textiles for yourself.

"Fabrics coloured using natural dyes have a beauty and subtlety of their own. In 'The Wild Dyer', Abigail Booth, co-founder of Forest + Found, demystifies the 'magic' of natural dyeing, focusing first on how to find your own dyeing materials, whether they are kitchen waste, homegrown or foraged plants, including onion and avocado skins, comfrey, blackberries, nettles and acorns. She then shows you how to use the results to stunning effect in a selection of exquisite patchwork and stitch projects that include a forager's bag, a gardener's smock, cushions and a reversible patchwork blanket."
