The Science & the Arts: The Science of Plant Based Dyes

Hello science teachers,

I am a professional Winnipeg artist working primarily in textiles. I have a
long history of working with textile dyes and have been spending the past three years dedicating my practise to using natural plant based dyes. This is a passion of mine, and I would love to find more ways to inspire and connect with
people regarding the exciting properties which dye producing plants have.

Are you aware of the Manitoba Arts Council Program entitled “ArtSmarts” to
support collaboration between local artists and public school educators?

I would love to work with biology teachers on presenting a workshop which
introduces the history and science behind the relationship humans have with  dye producing plants.

Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you!
