Victoria Finlay : The Brilliant History of Color Innov&Crea

    • Design

Season 1 - Episode 14
We can hardly talk about art & design without talking about innovation...in colors! On this episode, we brighten up your day with author and journalist Victoria Finlay as we travel through time and across the world to learn about the history of color and pigments through fascinating stories. We weave it all (pun intended!) with the subjects of fabric & textile, the topic of her latest book. Join us on this journey of adventure and discovery!
