The Natural Fabric Children's Art Kit
Plants have been used by humankind to dye fabric, skin, hair and stone since before recorded history - as decoration, to communicate, for camouflage - and just for fun!
Using the dried natural dye powders supplied in this kit, mixed with a little water to make a paint-like consistency. Dip your brush into the dye, and you can decorate your calico cotton triangle any way you’d like. Just 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 you’re ready to wave your fabulous, personalised, natural flag with pride!
What's in the kit?
- A blank calico flag; a rectangular piece of natural calico cotton, with a sewn edge for stick (flag pole) insertion, ready for decorating.
- 5 mini bunting flags.
- A wooden handled paintbrush for use with your natural dye paints.
- Three vibrant powdered dyes in handy screw tins: spinach, beetroot and turmeric.
- A mini mallet.
- An instruction postcard.
