Jenny uses two main ways of Eco dyeing with leaves, these techniques are from India Flint’s book and from attending a workshop led by India. One method is bundle dyeing, leaves are layered with fabric and then rolled and tied up very firmly and boiled and left over night in the saucepan.
The second involves making a sandwich of fabric and leaves and wrapping this around something hard, could be a baked bean tin, tyeing this and steaming it in a vegetable steamer.
