A History of Dyes: from Ancient Egypt to modern times – Webinar series
Dyes have been used since ancient times to colour fabrics, but in modern times are also employed for technical as well as aesthetic applications. This talk will highlight the most important natural dyes, including some that could only be worn by nobility; then look at the invention of synthetic dyes which led to brightly coloured fabrics becoming widely available. As well as for fashion, dyes today can be also designed for functional uses and some of these high-tech applications will be discussed.
Dr. Christine Holdstock will help you to:
- Have an understanding of the development of dyes throughout the ages.
- Appreciate the importance of dyes in the past and in the modern world.
The presentation is followed by a Q&A.
