Natural Plant Dyes – an exhibition by Linda Moss

Using only natural materials for dyeing, it is amazing to see the spectrum of colours that can be achieved. From bright pinks to sultry greens, every dyeing attempt becomes a mini adventure into the unknown.

This is what gives Linda Moss the desire to continue experimenting with natural dyes. A spinner for thirty years, she started to diversify and to “broaden her horizons” and began experimenting with dyes. “Natural dyes are fascinating, giving you different results each time,” says Linda, “It’s the fun part.” The dyeing potential of plants is governed by a number of conditions, such as water quality, soil and the time of year.

Later in the year, The Living Rainforest hopes to host a further exhibition of her work which will showcase wool dyed using rainforest plant parts. The current exhibition will run for the next couple of months.

Special events and activities are being held every day throughout the summer months at The Living Rainforest. For further information, please visit www.livingrainforest.org or call us on 01635 202444.
