How to grow a natural dye garden?

15th February 2023

Are you an artist who dreams of creating your own natural pigments and paints? What if you could cultivate a garden filled with vibrant hues, ready to be used in your artwork, while also embracing a sustainable and fulfilling experience?

I’m delighted to announce my latest course, “From Petals to Palette,” which is tailor-made for artists. Being an artist myself, I’ve long been captivated by the charm of natural pigments and the eco-friendly practice of gathering them. However, I eventually discovered an even more sustainable and gratifying way of creating my own pigments and paints: by growing my own dye garden.

Paints made from homegrown organic natural dye plants.

Going back to the roots and cultivating my own natural color sources has been  an incredibly rewarding process. Not only can I create unique and vibrant colors, but I’m also reducing my carbon footprint and embracing a more sustainable practice of creating art.

With “From Petals to Palette,” I’m excited to share my experience and guide you on your own journey of creating a natural dye garden. Whether you’re an experienced gardener or a beginner, this course is perfect for anyone who wants to explore the beauty and sustainability of creating art from the earth.

Last year, I shared seven blog posts related to natural dye gardening. They covered everything from the basics of starting a natural dye garden to the different plants you can grow for specific colors. Now, with “From Petals to Palette,” I’m excited to take things further and guide you on how to create your very own color palette using plants you’ve grown yourself.

The best part about natural dye gardening is that you don’t need a large plot of land to get started. In fact, you can create a vibrant and abundant dye garden in a small space, such as a balcony or container garden. In this course,  I’ll show you how to grow a dye garden no matter how much space you have. Whether you’re working with a small window box or a full-sized garden, I’ll share my insights on no-dig gardening to help you make the most of your space.

In this course, you’ll learn how to cultivate a variety of plants and extract an array of colors for your art. From the richest blues of indigo to the warmest yellows of coreopsis, you’ll have everything you need to create a unique color palette that’s all your own.

So don’t let a lack of space hold you back from creating your own natural pigments and paints. With a little creativity and the right guidance, you can cultivate a beautiful and sustainable dye garden right at home. Let’s embark on this fulfilling and sustainable journey together!
