Karen was really great- she explained and helped us with all of the projects that we worked on, and she also stayed later to cater for the students that brought more items to dye. It was a great learning experience

A great atmosphere with really lovely people. Karen was a very generous and supportive teacher. I learnt plenty of tips and techniques. The workshop setup provided everything we needed so I feel I achieved a lot in just a few short hours. To see Pepa and Karen’s work was inspirational and really made me want to continue to develop my skills. Thank you so much.

Such a fun workshop. Karen gave clear instructions and encouraged experimentation during the workshop which resulted in some great patterns across the group.
