“An Introduction to Dyeing & Finishing” (November 14, 2012, 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., cost £75) will cover the theory and practice of textile colouration and textile finishing.  Attendees will learn about: how dyes and fibres combine to give the final product, communicating dyeing needs to suppliers and manufacturing units, avoiding common fastness problems, and auditing dyehouse suppliers.  Ian Smith, Managing Director at Coloursmith Ltd, will present the seminar.

“An Introduction to Fabric and Garment Testing” (November 21, 2012, 9:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., cost £75) will cover both theory and practice regarding the importance of testing and how to test.  Attendees will learn about recommended and required quality, performance and safety testing for the main global markets, as well as test results and performance standards interpretation.  Joanne Brown, Client Services Manager at UL-STR, will present the seminar.
