Exchanging Ideas on Natural Dyes


There's More!

Since first launching, I have wanted to create a site where visitors can not only read about, but also view exciting new work in natural dyeing. I'm happy to announce the opening of the Gallery which features the work of Virginia Hoge. If you were lucky enough to attend the Colour Congress 2002, you will no doubt remember her exquisite paintings in the conference hall.

Virginia shares her remarkable journey of discovery in her accompanying article "Painting with Natural Dyes". Anyone who is interested in experimenting with new uses of natural dyes will be fascinated!

In the next few months, Virginia will also contribute a profile of master dyer and mentor, Jim Liles. If you would like to write an article or show your work in the Gallery, please fill in the contact form and let us know of your interest.
