Textile conservators need to be able to dye support fabrics that are
stable to light and water and are colour matched to the textile to
be supported.

A few places are available on the annual dye course which forms part
of the MA Textile Conservation programme. This intensive four-day
workshop introduces participants to dye theory and practice. It
includes dyeing a variety of typical support fabrics and
conservation sewing threads using Ciba Geigy dyes. Course
participants will work alongside current MA students in small groups
to enable the development of practical skills and familiarity with
dyeing techniques.

The course will appeal to practising or returning conservators who
have a special interest in textile conservation with appropriate
qualification and/or experience. Where appropriate, course members
will be selected to ensure comparable levels of experience. The
course will take place in the Centre's building on the Winchester
campus with good rail, road and air connections; information on a
range of local accommodation can be provided.

Outcomes: Participants will learn dyeing techniques on cotton, silk
fabric, nylon net and silk threads and will take away a variety of
dyed samples and recipes for future use.

Fee: UKP500 (includes materials, samples and a copy of the Centre's
Dye Manual).
