Captured by Colour is our documentary about the remarkable life of Bedfordale  artist Trudi Pollard. Trudi is an internationally renowned textile artist who works with all natural dyes and materials.  As a child, she was a Prisoner of War of the Japanese in what was then the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) and it was during this time that she discovered the magic of plant dyes.  The above picture is a still from the film.  Captured by Colour is due for completion in early 2021.
