The main focus of our workshops, which we run in England, central Portugal and SW France
is on Textiles Arts courses. Over the years a closer attention to ‘Natural Dyeing’ techniques has grown, we are cultivating a ‘Dyers garden’ and developing methods of processing plants for our Arts activities.

We offer: Full day, Weekend and Week-long courses.

Our course range is:

Natural-Dyeing/Eco-Printing, Indigo & Shibori, Felt-making, Batik,

Printing and Painting on fabric, & Heat transfer printing on fabric
