Naturally dyed textiles on display in the Nevin Welcome Center

48 weeks 12 hours ago
Creating textiles from natural dyes is a labor of love involving cultivation, harvest, textile preparation, and dye extraction. Add to this the various surface design techniques and natural dyeing becomes a labor of love. Cornell Professor Denise Green and students in her Natural Dye Studio course designed textiles in brilliant hues of yellows, reds, greens, blues, purples, and more. These naturally dyed textiles made from a range of plants, including marigold, sunflower and Japanese indigo are on display through June 2018.
