Mushrooms for Color DVD
This DVD presentation, an excellent addition to the book Mushrooms for Dyes, Paper, Pigments & Myco-Stix™ by Miriam C. Rice, combines two videos, produced in 1988 and 1993 respectively. Using extensive footage of Rice working around her home in the mushroom-rich environs of Mendocino, California, Dyeing with Fungi chronicles more than 20 years of her research and offers a fascinating glimpse into her methods for extracting the full spectrum of colors she discovered, as well as the excitement generated by her finds in the fibre arts community worldwide. This history of Miriam Rice’s work is followed by Papermaking with Polypores, a step-by-step guide demonstrated by Rice herself, to the method she developed for making truly gorgeous papers from mushrooms. 40 minutes, NTSC format, region-free.
