Creating textiles from natural dyes is a laborious process involving cultivation, harvest, textile preparation, and dye extraction. 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.
