As an educational charity the SDC offers courses and qualifications in the coloration of textiles. We’re also a global membership organisation and a centre for networking and community engagement. We work with people from technical and design backgrounds, addressing the skill gaps and training needs of young people and those already working in the textile industry. In this blog we take a look at some of the courses available.

‘A History of Pigments – Cave painting to Modern Day’ was the title of this recent event organised by SDC’s North of England Region.
The evening started with a hot buffet, once again spoken very highly of by all in attendance! Conversation flowed and was enjoyed by all, a mix of attendees from all aspects of industry and academia, even a couple of officers of the Midlands region!
Dr Christine Holdstock was introduced by Dr Muriel Rigout, Honorary Chair of the North of England Region. Christine started the evening by showing the group a ‘hand-crocheted-space-dyed’ cardigan.
