Sustainably grown plant dyes from South Devon
We occassionally exhibit at various local textile events, where we love meeting fellow crafters and sharing our expertise.
Unfortunately all events are currently on hold due to COVID.

About Badger Crafts
Badger Crafts is run by Brian Bond and Richard Lewis in the village of Dartington, South Devon. We’ve been knitting, spinning and dyeing for over 20 years and grow our plant dyes in our small, sustainably-managed garden.
With professional backgrounds as a statistician and botanist, Brian and Richard take a scientific approach to understanding plant dyes in order to get the best colours possible. We also work in collaboration with Susan and Ashley at ‘Nature’s Rainbow’, and manage the dye plants garden at Schumacher College.
