Come to rural Herefordshire and I will teach you how to dye fabric with plants gathered from my dye garden, relief print, flora print, abstract paint and embroider.
Take a tea break and enjoy the panoramic views from Staunton-on-Wye, to the Black Mountains, Hay Bluff, the Brecon Beacons and to the hills of Rhayader.
The workshops will be run from a converted 19th century granary, on the farm where I live, and although it has been extensively refurbished it has lost none of its original charm with red brick walls, original wooden flooring and trussed roof.

The cost of each workshop is inclusive of lunch and refreshments, each day. Please advise of any dietary requirements or allergies when booking. All tools and materials will be provided.
As the seasons change, from summer to autumn, so the availability of dye plants in the garden will lessen and it will become necessary to utilise vegetable matter and go further afield to source more from the hedgerows.
The workshops are for all those who are interested in creativity, beginners and others alike. However, because of the type of tools used in some instances, they are not suitable for anyone under the age of 18 years.
PLEASE NOTE: All government COVID-19 guidelines were put in place when I opened on 23 July, it may be necessary to cancel or re-schedule the workshops at short notice if there is another lockdown. If we are allowed to proceed please ensure you bring face coverings with you when you attend. Social distancing rules will be adhered to, I have deliberately cut the numbers attending from eight to four. Hand washing facilities and hand sanitisers will be available and you should utilise these as often as you feel is necessary. Your safety is important.
Any money paid for any workshops cancelled due to Covid-19 will be refunded in full if you are unable to attend on an alternative date.
