love your holistic approach to natural dyes
I’m hoping you can share a few stories of how plants are used for dye in different locations in the world — stories that you’ve been able to learn through your ethnobotany studies that we might not have heard.
Can we get the recording?
still curious: what are the ten plants for color that you wrote about?
HI Deepa, great talk! Have you ever had a chance to look into the Bengal Famine caused by forced indigo planting in Bengal under the East India Company?

Which plants have you found easiest to grow- though we are in the Northeast? AND which sunflower seeds give good color- they grow well in New England.
many thanks for a wonderful and inspirational talk. Barbara in LA
thank you! beautiful presentation!
what a profound series of connections that you are making — thank you for your deep inquiry!
Thank you, Deepa, such a great talk! Have you explored dyeing with mushrooms or lichen at all? Apparently mushrooms are being reclassified as being closer to humans than many plants!!
Thank you!! This was so wonderful
Please include the name and if possible Contact info foe the Chemist shown in the slide, Thanks.
Great talk. Can you speak about Morocco? What natural dyes did you see / work with? Have you done extensive indigo work in India?
Love your focus! Thank you!
I am so inspired…I have been thinking about this theme for about a decade.
Love the thoughts on goals!!!
email again please
One of the first few slides had a picture of something like egg shells or clam shells. What are they really?
Thank you Deepa for mentioning your experience in questioning why we use natural dyes …it’s been something I’ve been thinking about so much in the past year…I’ve been growing my own various natural dye plants and just focusing on my relationship with them. I’d love to hear more about your thoughts on that hopefully in the near future! Thank you for your inspiring presentation!
Deepa, do you still live in Oregon? If you, I’d love to meet you :)
Amazing. Very grateful for your inspiration.
Do you have experience working with lichens? If so, do you know which ones are non-toxic and safe to use?
there is a short article about Deepa in Flora (winter 2021) this is the journal for the California Native Plant society.
Thank you for a fabulous lecture that is close to my heart as a gardener/dyer and plant lover.

You mentioned medicinal dyes can you speak more about this please?
