Make a brew, gather some extra tea bags and find some paper or some plain cotton or linen fabric and we can begin…

I’m Sian and I love producing colour from nature.
A warm welcome from me! I’m going to introduce you to the wonderful world of dyeing with plants.
With a family history in textiles, it’s no surprise to find me working with cottons and silks every single day… although I didn’t know the full extent of this history when I started out. I just knew I was in the right place.
And I hope you will too, once you get started.
There is something very satisfying and soulful about producing colour from nature. My journey as a botanical dyer has led me on an adventure in colour over the last 10 years, born from a love of textiles, colour and the environment – and a desire to create something unique.
My plant-dyed ribbons have been featured in the Universal Films costume drama ‘Emma’, in weddings and events around the world, and in MAKE: Cornwall book.
I love to use ancient recipes of natural plant based colours, infused with romance and a little bit of magic, to create colours from the landscape and changing seasons.
I hope that by joining me you will be touched by this magic and experience the joy that connecting with nature can bring.
There is so much to discover – more on that later! – but it only has to start with a simple tea bag, and that’s where we’ll kick off.
I can’t wait to share my easy steps to produce beautiful colour at home using nature, live from my studio in south east Cornwall.
