Dr. Linda S. McIntosh, Consulting Curator, presents a full morning program on natural dyes. Over three thousand recipes for natural dyes exist. The use of natural dyes has declined throughout the world, but much of the knowledge has been forgotten. Some groups continue to apply natural dyes to their textiles while others work to preserve the knowledge. A 1.5 hour video entitled, “In Search of Lost Color: The Story of Natural Dyes,” will be played in the program, and Dr. McIntosh will discuss the state of natural dyeing in Thailand and Laos. The program will be illustrated with textiles from The Tilleke & Gibbins Textile Collection.
The event is free.
