CurioUs about the process?

Learning how to extract colour from natural sources & dye fibres, fabrics, textiles or garments is a great way to build your knowledge while preserving & reviving traditional arts. 

We all learn differently but if you're anything like me, I need to see a process in action to grasp it fully. While books, tutorials & articles have their merit, theres nothing quite like the understanding that comes from immersing yourself fully in a process and being able to ask questions as they arise. 

Whether you're an amateur natural dyer or you simply like to dip your toes in all kids of creative pursuits, my natural dye workshops are a wonderful way to spend your time, meet new people & add an incredibly valuable skill to your repertoire.  

If you're looking for someone to gently guide you through the process from start to finish in a relaxing environment then you've come to the right place. 


“Kathryn is a wonderful, patient, sensitive teacher, I wish we could have spent an extra week
