RESCHEDULED: The Lifecycles of Colours: A Conversation about Plant-Based Dyes, Agriculture, and Art with Dahlia Milon

Dahlia Milon’s practice as a knitter and as a cultivator of dye plants asks: how can we integrate nature into our creations? How does the experience of cyclicity acquired through nurturing raw, living materials influence the rhythm of our craft? 

Dahlia Milon is a textile craftsperson who specializes in vegetable dyeing and the cultivation of dye plants. To contribute to critical, ethical changes within the textile industry, Milon aims to make local dye plants accessible to the public and to disseminate the knowledge on their uses.

Join us in this discussion about seasonality, sustainable art-making, agriculture, and vegetal dyeing.
