Hand Dyeing Heaven since 2005!

Dye workshops template

Debbie says... I love teaching workshops and courses – part of the pleasure of doing something I love for a living is in knowing that other people have shared my passion and enthusiasm, learned something new, had lots of fun and generally had a good time! Teaching is a learning process for the tutor as much as for the students so I like to keep a comments book for feedback. Here are some of my favourite excerpts…

What our students say....

“I had a wonderful time and discovered a new passion! Thank you so much for your clear and thorough instructions and for being such an inspiration. My only problem is finding the time to fit dyeing into my already busy days – but never fear, it will have to be done! Inspiring!”
“Wonderful! Thank you very much”. “A really fun session that demystified what had seemed like a very complicated craft to me before today. Thank you! “Fab fun. I was really curious to know how some many colours can get into a single skein – now I know (some!). I’d love to do some more! Thankyou!”.

“Thankyou Debbie! You’ve inspired me! I’ve really enjoyed learning a new skill and you’re a very patient teacher. I will look out for you at the festivals”. All the best, Elizabeth x
