Gathering Colour by Caitlin ffrench


As artist Caitlin ffrench shares her deeply personal approach to working with natural pigments, she invites readers to discover magic in the colour all around you. Explore how to respectfully wildcraft pigments from rocks, dirt and sticks; and how to forage or cultivate dye plants. Learn how to make inks, paints and dyes from natural pigments for use on paper, fibre, textiles and more. Develop personal rituals for marking the seasons and interacting with nature that will inform and inspire your creativity. For artists, for crafters, for curious inhabitants of this big beautiful world: Gathering Colour will help you bring fresh perspective and a connection to nature into your creative practice.
