 Recently tweaked in  Spring 2017  after a comprehensive rewrite in 2016

This book covers  the many different ways indigo can be dyed with from fermented vats, using fresh leaves, to the Sugar Lime Vat .    Since its premier of copies to participants and visitors who came on my course at the biennial summer school of Weavers Spinners and Dyers at Falmouth in August 2007 I have had many positive feedbacks on how easy it is to read and to follow as well as success stories too  of those who have succeeded to dye with indigo as a result of reading it. It has now been comprehensivley updated with extra chapters. I have expanded on the fermentaion vats still my favourite but there is also a chapter on the Sugar Lime Vat which, is excellent for cottons and silks  and is an eco vat using fruit sugar and builders lime.

Colour of the Sea and Sky is an A4 booklet  of 39 pages comb bound with  covers handpainted in natural  dye inks,  Cover may differ from the photograph shown.
