Code Of Ethics (short form)

Mission Statement

Redding Method is committed to teaching the general public scientific and artistic techniques in hand dyeing raw protein and cellulose fibers.  This education is important in preserving a 4500 year old history in textile colorization as well as keeping pace with society’s trend toward self sustainability and away from industrially manufactured necessities.  Beyond teaching the history and practical application of coloring textile fiber components, Redding Method advances traditional techniques by incorporating modern day science and artistic fundamentals germane to the hand dyeing process.
