Dunja lives and works on a traditional hill farm in the beautiful Black Mountains in South East Wales, easily accessible from most parts of the UK. From her studio she teaches spinning and weaving to beginners and advanced level.

She also spins and weaves to commission and supplies spinning and weaving equipment.

When she’s not spinning, weaving, teaching or developing new courses she helps out on the farm and assists with showing pedigree Clun Forest and Zwartbles sheep at the larger county shows in Wales and the Midlands.

Dunja is available to travel throughout the UK and Europe to deliver her courses to your group.

Luxurious B&B accommodation in a double/twin room and use of a sitting room with fabulous views across the Rhiangoll valley is available in the farmhouse, ideal for course participants and friends. There’s lots to do in the area, with lovely mountain walks direct from Pen Y Caeau Farm.
