The colour and handle of a textile product is one of its most important aesthetic properties. However, dyeing and finishing wool can be challenging to the unskilled – though learning modern dyeing and finishing practices that are firmly based on a systematic, scientific approach assures the enhancement of wools natural qualities.
This course provided those presently in industry with a detailed understanding of modern wool dyeing and finishing methods and practice It provided clear guidance on how theoretical principles are translated into practical processing procedures. Considerable emphasis was placed on testing and objective measurement as the criteria for evaluating the success of procedures in order to meet customer requirements.
As this is an intensive course consisting of comprehensive and detailed practical information, participants were expected to be industry practitioners and professional.
