Introduction I am a passionate natural dyer and felter and have been doing both for about twenty years. About five years ago my neglected garden became too much, I asked around for a gardener. Enys rang me up and I heard myself saying "well what I really want is a dye garden". Enys, said " I have always wanted to do a dye garden" and so my dye garden was begun. In 2008 I developed a range of natural dye inks, using the techniques of the medieaval calligraphers. You can find my inks for sale on www.fieryfelts.co.uk
