  • What students are saying...

    "I have been dyeing for over thirty years, and I also happen to be an industrial chemist which does help (well I think so). I enjoyed reading through this. It reminded me of a few things I had forgotten too!! So all in all a very good reminder for me. I have done very little printing as it never really appealed to me, but after this I might be giving it a go." Jane Martin @ Dresses To Dye For
