Red Dyes with Making and Knowing Project, Columbia University, NYC

This workshop fosters a collaboration between the Making and Knowing Project at Columbia University with the Refashioning the Renaissance Project, and it’s aim is to enable hands-on experimentation with a range of materials commonly used in the early modern period for dyeing. This includes including the widespread madder, the expensive kermes, and the potent cochineal, one of the new materials being imported into early modern Europe.
