Aurora reviewed: 6 Hour Introduction to Natural Dyeing, ELKA Studio, Upper Slackstead, Hampshire

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course and it was fascinating to learn the process of natural dyeing. Claudia is a great instructor, knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. The hands-on experience was invaluable and helps students feel confident enough to try dyeing at home. Lovely studio, location and great to meet other like-minded people!"

Elka responded:

" Thank you so much for the lovely review Aurora. It was great to meet you and to have you on the workshop. Best wishes, Claudia."

Moyna reviewed: 6 Hour Introduction to Natural Dyeing, ELKA Studio, Upper Slackstead, Hampshire

"I spent a wonderful day yesterday in the middle of the Hampshire countryside with a lovely small group of fellow dyers. Claudia shares her knowledge and experience freely, with ease, fun and enthusiasm. She obviously loves her subject. Her tuition is spot on - easy to follow with lots of examples and encouragement to be hands on. The practical experience was well set out and we each produced a different dye bath - it was fascinating to see the colours develop. I learnt so much - I came away with exactly what I wanted from the day - enough knowledge to encourage me to carry on at home, but not too much technical information that could put you off 'flying solo'. Good straightforward information booklet to take home and lots of contacts and suppliers to stock up. I loved it and would recommend this day to everyone."

Elka responded:

" Thank you so much Moyna for taking the time to leave a review, it's so helpful to gain feedback. Thank you also for your contribution to the workshop, it was lovely to meet you. Best wishes, Claudia."
