Educating the changing world in the science of colour


Join Now

Membership is a community of nearly 2,000 members in almost 50 countries worldwide, from textile artists to designers and colour technologists to educators, and is at the heart of SDC. Wherever you are in your career, SDC can help you with your journey, whether it’s through sharing knowledge, bringing the right people together or providing practical advice.

If you are actively engaged in the coloration industry and hold a relevant qualification or have substantial relevant experience, you can upgrade your membership and progress towards an SDC qualification.

Members benefit from:

  • Knowledge – access to a wide range of specialist colour resources.
  • Networking – the opportunity to meet other colour professionals and share knowledge and ideas.
  • Career development – achieved through training, qualifications and continuous professional development.

Types of Membership

There is a category of membership to suit everyone. Whether you are a student, at the start of your career or an experienced colour professional, membership has something for you!


In a number of countries, local regions exist. In addition to the core package of benefits delivered centrally by SDC, additional events and activities are delivered locally; countries include India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Hong Kong. Local regions provide you with the opportunity to network face-to-face with members from across the coloration industry. Lectures, seminars and social events are held throughout the year.
New friends and a warm welcome await you!
