Lovely to meet you!
I’m Rebecca Desnos, a natural dye artist, author and educator based in the UK.
For the last decade, I’ve been on a journey of discovery with natural dyes. It’s a never-ending adventure with new plants to try that I’ve foraged in the wild, grown in the garden, or found in my kitchen.
Welcome to my studio!
Natural Dye Club is a new way to learn how to dye with plants.
I’ll eliminate the overwhelm from natural dyeing so you can actually enjoy the creative process.
You get access to a library of dye projects and videos, personalised support so you’re never left struggling alone, and a supportive community of other curious dyers.
unlock the colour potential of the plants around you
Create your own unique and beautiful colour palette using the plants that you already have at your fingertips – and even in your kitchen cupboards! This is why I called my first book Botanical Colour at your Fingertips.
