an Autumn update on Winter workshops



After a busy few months with online and in studio workshops I have said yes to a little holiday in May and then a month to focus on a new collection of silk scarves and shawls. #watchthisspace


I have enjoyed every workshop these last few months as each group filled the studio or zoom screen with passion & enthusiasm for the process of botanical dyeing or printing. The connections between fibre and humans are certainly interwoven and were tangibly felt in the few escaped hours in the beautiful de Trafford garden. The studio continues to bathe in quiet happiness long after the participants return home.


My last online class takes place this Saturday. As from July my workshops will take place in my studio here in Stellenbosch.


Please make note of following dates.

Workshops will be limited to a maximum 10 peeps during the winter months. More inside time but we'll have the fire going with delicious soup and wine to warm us up as well.
