It was in 1996 that a small group of Dyers decided to revive the Craft after their numbers had dwindled. The Trade opened its membership to people working in colour. Since that decision, we find Craftsmen involved in Architecture, Sculpture, Printed Plastics, Newspaper Design, Photography, Textiles, Computing Game Design and Artists in its ranks. The Craft is still willing and anxious to increase the range of its membership, whilst maintaining the integrity of its original aims and objectives. Tradition is indeed important, but so also is the future.
