AATCC Color Management Workshop to be held in September
17
Jul '12

Explore the role of color on textiles at the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) Color Management Workshop, Sept. 19-20, 2012, in a two-day program featuring world-renowned industry experts in color science, measurement, and communication.

The workshop—which is ideal for merchandisers, retailers, manufacturers, product developers, color approval managers, specifiers, and designers—will be held at the AATCC Technical Center in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA.

Color plays an important role in consumers’ purchasing decisions. Communicating color throughout the textile supply chain is imperative to get the color envisioned by the designer and demanded by the consumer. 

At AATCC’s Color Management Workshop, attendees will hear color experts discuss color principles,  the effect of lighting, factors to consider when developing a color palette (and how these choices affect cost, fashion, durability, and dyeing reproducibility), how to implement a digital color program with your supplier, how to control shade from concept to production, and much more.

Past participants have praised the workshop's "excellent real-world applications," and the speakers' "wide range of knowledge." The workshop features presentations and breakout sessions each day.

Presentations include:  

  • Fundamentals of Color Theory and Measurement; Renzo Shamey, North Carolina State University
  • Dye Selection for Desired Fastness Requirements; Nelson E. Houser, M. Dohmen USA
  • Color Communication Best Practices; Sandy Johnson, Color Solutions International
  • Color Communication: Getting Your Message Across; Roland L. Connelly
  • Supplier Conformance - Why Don’t my Numbers Match Yours?; Ken Butts, Datacolor
  • Color and Lighting: Best Practices Today; Ann C. Laidlaw, X-Rite Inc.
  • Managing Color on Multiple Textile Substrates; Speaker TBA
  • Your World, Your Process: Applying What You Have Learned; Speaker TBA

Break Out sessions will focus on:

  • Illumination and observer issues,
  • Sample analysis and measurement technique,
  • Creativity with trends and virtual development,
  • What is color matching,
  • Production evaluation and control,
  • How to do the right color right.

 AATCC is the world’s leading not-for-profit association serving textile professionals and was founded in 1921. AATCC, headquartered in Research Triangle Park, N.C., USA, provides test method development, quality control materials, and professional networking for its members around the world.
