Speaker Session by Namrata Manot
For thousands of years, natural dyes have kept us connected with the natural world. It wasn’t until around 150 years ago that synthetic dyes were introduced, and in that short time they have caused immense environmental damage. The art of making natural dyes is an excellent way to teach history and science while engaging children in a fun, hands-on activity.
