Pepa was extremely patient and helpful. She had great suggestions to make the dyeing work best. The venue is very accessible and next to a great coffee shop. Highly recommend this course.

I brought my mum along to this class and had a blast! Karen was extremely knowledgeable on the history, process and techniques of shibori. We made some beautiful designs with ease with Karen’s guidance. Highly recommend

Karen was a great teacher who provided individual support to help people achieve their shibori ideas. It was a really fun class and my friends and I would recommend it.

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.
