The Art and Science of Dyeing

Lyman Plant House, Church Exhibition Gallery

Join us for The Art and Science of Dyeing, a new exhibit which explores the fascinating world of natural dyes. Hanging textiles of silk, wool, and linen showcase the beautiful range of colors possible when dyeing with plants, while accompanying interpretation explains the science behind the process.
The exhibition was developed and produced in collaboration with Michelle Parrish,   a natural dyer, weaver, and spinner living and working in the Connecticut River Valley of Western Massachusetts.
