What people say

I obtained my ASDC many years ago and it provided me with the necessary grounding to develop my career to where it is now.

Professor Stephen Westland CCol FSDC School of Design, University of Leeds

Having had no formal training in colour my colleague suggested that I try the TCC course. I am now confident in dyeing and colour and able to educate the production guys in this.
