We at Beautiful Silks have scheduled the NATURAL DYE SYMPOSIUM, an international seminar to be held in June and July 2012 in Fitzroy.

We have designed a work experience plan so that students studying either TEXTILES or EVENTS MANAGEMENT & MARKETING can gain, through their volunteer experience or work experience, sufficient experience to pass the course. We believe that we can accommodate up to 10 students.
