The Colour Explosion: 19th Century saw the greatest colour achievements of natural dyes and The 19th Century Colour Explosion
Dr Susan Kay-Williams Tuesday 20 February 2018

The C19 saw the biggest changes to how colour was created, than has ever been known. This lecture explores the achievements of the “natural dyers” by the middle of the century and what happened after the discovery of synthetic colours and how colour (and its uses) were changed forever.
