I was entrigued to read of this event although not able to get to Wellington that November Saturday. I did however request the publication be purchased at my local library. And have since enjoyed an initial read. Particularly of the resist dye techniques and examples presented. Am wondering if an attendee might be presenting a review of the lecture event potentially for Context dress/fashion/textiles. Sincerely Jennifer Matheson
