The Den Kit Company's Natural Fabric Art kit contains everything you need to decorate your own flag and bunting with two different methods: hapa zome and natural dye painting. Plants have been used by people to dye fabric, skin, hair and stone since before recorded history - as decoration, to communicate, for camouflage - and just for fun!
Mix the dried natural dye powders with a little water to make a paint-like consistency. Dip the brush into the dye, and decorate your calico cotton triangle flag and bunting. Pop the finished flag onto a stick once it’s dry (you’ll need a stick the right width to fit inside the sewn edge) and thread the bunting flags onto the twine. So fun!
Contents: calico flag and set of 5 mini bunting flags, natural twine, 3 tins of powdered natural dyes - turmeric, beetroot and spinach, wooden paintbrush, mini mallet made from coppiced wood, instructions and hessian bag.
