This manual will teach you the fundamentals of botanical textile dyes using dyestuffs from kitchen waste, as well as some techniques for creating tie dye patterns. We use socks as an example here, but you are welcome to try t-shirts, pillowcases and other textile items you may have at home. The step-by-step guide covers scouring, mordanting (optional), tying and dyeing; with dye recipes made from onion skins, pomegranate rinds, and avocado pits.

About the designer:
Lauren MacDonald is a multidisciplinary artist and designer, and the creator of textile studio, Working Cloth. Her practice is textile-focused and spans interaction design, installation, sculpture, and two-dimensional stitched forms.
