A DYER’S MANUAL
Jill Goodwin, an experimental dyer for over fifty years and well respected for her knowledge of dye plants and her work with woad, published A Dyer’s Manual in 1982.
Despite 2 reprints it became unavailable until 2003 when, following many requests it was produced again, in a softback edition, by Ashmans Publications so her enthusiasm and interest can be shared with a new generation of dyers.
