This guide describes a new method of dyeing plant fibres which are to be made into hats and handbags and other craft work. The pages on this side of the book are intended as a guide for the instructor and extension worker to help him introduce the method to craft workers. We hope the booklet will also be of use to the craft dyers and workers themselves so we have designed the left-hand pages specially for them. The left-hand pages describe the method in photographs with short, clear instructions. The right-hand pages give more information and will help extension workers and instructors to understand and explain the method.
