Natural Dye Journal
These Natural Dye Journals are made up of recycled pages, a screen printed cover, an entire page of recipes and process notes, a big coil so that they can grow as you fill them up, and space for your observational drawings on each page.
They are a collaborative project by Salt Textile Studios and Art Problems Studio.
Keeping a record of your experiments in natural dyeing is such an important (and beautiful) part of this practice. I keep track of the date and location of foraged plants, the process I used to extract color, the fiber praparation techniques, and a little drawing of the dye materials. This information, paired with samples of fabric and yarn is so helpful when it comes to planning projects.
Journaling is a way of being present and intentional in this work and understanding the process more deeply.
Natural Dye Journals are 8.5 x 11" and have 21 spreads for entries (each spread includes two pages).
