Dye course for textile conservation
Textile Conservation Centre
Winchester, England
17-20 April 2007

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.

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.

The course will appeal to practising or returning conservators who
have a special interest in textile conservation with appropriate
qualification and/or 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.

The fee is UKP500 including materials, samples and a copy of the
Centre's Dye Manual. For further information, please contact:
