Hand Dyeing Heaven since 2005!

Bespoke tuition

Bespoke tuition for small groups

Are you keen to learn a particular technique or do you want to learn something new?

Let us know what you’re looking for and Debbie will agree a bespoke schedule with you at a time to suit you.

Maybe you’re looking for a unique place and something a bit different for a crafty party, celebration or just to get together with friends?

Debbie’s cosy studio is the perfect place to unwind and relax, having fun while making something special.

Debbie has a wide range of project-based sessions that explore some of the crafts below and you will take away a completed project at the end of your session/s.

Our small group sessions can also be arranged for youngsters, with projects and ideas specifically tailored to be creative, fun and exciting!

Regular sessions and socials

If you are looking for a place to meet and practice your own crafts or to enjoy guided sessions on a range of topics, Debbie will be happy to discuss opportunities for regular sessions, knit and natters, sew-cials and textile groups. Just ask!

Team-building, mindfulness and health & wellbeing
