Dyeing

Did you know that you can use blackberries, elderberries, onion skins and sunflower seeds to dye textiles? I just found this book and will try some of the recipes as soon as I figure out the safety of using chrome, copper and blue vitriol for mordants. Also, check out the groovy textile art made by the author Alma Lesch.
