Connecting with what it means to be of this land, through practical relationship with the plants and fungi that surround us.

I am a natural dyer, grower, and forager. I explore the land through gathering wild dye plants, fungi, lichen, and algae, as well as growing plants to produce a variety of vibrant colours using non toxic plant based processes.

Natural Dyeing – Out on the land observing and learning from the wild plants that grow around us. Getting to know plants through natural dyeing. Gathering wild plants such as meadowsweet and buddleia flowers, oak galls, and dock roots, or growing dye plants in my garden such as madder, woad, and coreopsis.

Wild Plants – To be wild is to know how to look after ourselves. There was a time when we all knew the plants that were growing around us intimately. There were no weeds, only medicines, foods, dye plants, and craft materials. We knew when to gather the lime flowers. We knew which tree would give us the best fire wood. Which plants would wake us up, and which ones would send us to sleep. We could read the landscape and find what we needed. I think it is important for us to come together to find and share this plant based knowledge, so it can be common knowledge again.

Teaching/consultancy – Bringing people together to be creative. Sharing technical skills through which we can be creative. Enabling the creation of handmade fabrics will be used and cherished, enduring and being repaired over time.
