This was a really enjoyable and informative day. Susan is very knowledgeable and the course was exactly the right balance of learning and practical hands on experience with a relaxed atmosphere. The small class ensured Susan gave everyone the support they needed. Would thoroughly recommend.

Many thanks for a very enjoyable day, Susan. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about the process of dyeing with woad and was very pleased with my finished items. Your instruction was clear and concise and allowed us plenty of time for the practical, hands on experiences - thank you!

Susan's dyeing with woad workshop was a well- paced and well- organised day leaving me satisfied and more confident in continuing to dye with woad at home.
Susan is knowledgeable and friendly and enabled each participant to develop their expertise, and experiment with the fibres and textiles we had prepared beforehand, as well as with some textiles available for purchase from Susan.
I thoroughly enjoyed the learning and experimentation and your teaching Susan and would definately recommend the course to others. Thank you!

A very informative, hands on and enjoyable day. Susan created a friendly and relaxed environment but also delivered a well planned and organised set of activities - allowing us all to learn how to create dye baths from both Woad leaves and extract. The accompanying notes were comprehensive and a choice of materials were available to practise several different dyeing techniques. We also dyed materials brought from home. Susan is an experienced dyer and teacher and I definitely recommend her dye courses.

A really enjoyable introduction to natural dyeing. In the course we dyed wool, fleece, silk and cotton with a number of plants including material collected from the National Wool Museum's excellent dyer's garden. Susan, the tutor, also provided comprehensive notes on the methods for us. An informative and enjoyable day.

Such a unique experience in the most beautiful setting ! Had an absolutely fantastic day and came away with so much !
Susan is a great teacher with very clear instructions and the love of her craft clearly comes through. I take part in many craft courses as I like to try my hand at many things, but have to say - this was one of the best for sure.

Excellent course in a beautiful setting. Susan gives very clear instructions which are backed up with well-written handouts. Good to explore the woods for plant materials to be used in the dyeing session, this gives you ideas and the confidence for dyeing at home. I would recommend this course for anybody interested in natural dyeing, from beginners to the more experienced. Good fun!

An excellent course in a beautiful setting. Clear explanations and handouts. Nice balance of theory explained and 'hands on' dyeing. am looking forward to using the yarn I dyed in projects.
