Colour Workshops for Schools are back in October!

Last year two schools took advantage of our free workshops for their top Junior classes.

Richard Ashworth, from the Society of Dyers & Colourists will be back with his hands-on experiments in a world of fabrics and dyes.  Chemistry and the kitchen combine as acids and alkalis perform amazing effects in these fascinating workshops.

The next sessions are on Thursday 6th October.  Each session takes up to 90 minutes and is available for either the morning or the afternoon.  All materials are supplied and take place safely in the classroom.

For further information, please contact Jane Ford, Education Co-Ordinator, Stroudwater Textile Trust at
