A Treasure by Post

This week I took delivery of a beautiful book, “Mushrooms for Dyes, Paper, Pigments & Myco-Stix” by Miriam Rice, with illustrations by Dorothy Beebee. Miriam Rice is the acknowledged authority on the subject of mushroom dyes and I ordered the book in the hope of extending my knowledge and understanding of dye-producing fungi.

The book is a treasure trove of information, with lovely colour photos and wonderful drawings by Dorothy Beebee. It will certainly inspire me to continue to search for fungi to use in the dyepot.

The book is available in the USA from www.mushroomsforcolor.com and in the UK from www.fibrecrafts.com

    Jenny, we have some fungi on the greengage tree, might they be of use to dye with?
