This is a brand new, hardcover copy, of "Lasting Impressions: A Practical Guide in the Art of Botanical Dyeing" by Sharon Mansfield. Sharon is co-owner of The Tin Thimble and has been working on this book for years. We are so proud to announce it's completion!
I'm offering everyone access to decades of my experimentation, recipe development, plant identification, and finished reference examples of all my work to learn from. I've held nothing back; this 250+ page book will give you everything you need to create beautiful botanically dyed fabrics and clothing with consistent imprints, using only natural and safe methods. Furthermore, I've condensed all of my knowledge into one easy-to-read and follow workbook that you can use again and again as your skill level grows. I hope you are as excited as I am for you to embark on your botanical dyeing journey!

A BEAUTIFUL book ….
Sharon’s book on eco print is the best of its kind I’ve come across. Specific to the art and science of eco leaf printing, her book provides detailed instructions on every facet of the process. Leaf types, mordant “recipes”, equipment list, resources and more are logically presented. The photography is unparalleled and illustrates clearly all the steps to produce your own masterpieces. This book is a treasure trove.
