59. Art for the Earth: Sustainable Practices and Natural Dyes with Fiber Artist Lotta Helleberg

Welcome to this week’s episode of The Good Dirt Podcast where we speak to Swedish-born artist, Lotta Helleberg, who specializes in fiber, printmaking, and book arts. Early in her career as an artist, she began to reconsider the harmful dyes and toxic materials she was using, and made the switch from synthetic to natural dyes and paints. Lotta now tends the trees and plants that are translated into both the design and the color of her work, right in her own garden. This ethos of sustainability in her work carries through every part of her artistic process, from composting old leaves used in the printmaking to creating her own processing solution from iron scraps. Lotta continues to find joy in the mystery of every newly unrolled print, and encourages us to find beauty in the natural world all around us. Join us on this week’s episode to find out more.
