Fabulous Fabrics- Dyeing Through Time - Teen Workshop

May 22, 2016


Explore how wealth, status, power, and fashion collide with the natural world with this hands-on experience in natural dyes at AMNH! Uncover the role color played in shaping societies across the globe with our anthropology collection, and see the plants, sea life, and insects that created desirable dyes. Then take a trip through time to dye your own fabrics with natural materials and traditional techniques and experience the sights, smells, and styles of the ancient world. (You will be using permanent dyes in this class, please wear appropriate clothes).

Applications can be found here.
