    Courses Overview

    Start your natural dyeing journey here, in the rural SA37 postcode area of Pembrokeshire - nearest villages are Boncath and Crymych and the coastal towns of Newport and Cardigan in West Wales. Learn how to hand dye protein fibres (animal fibres such as sheep wool, alpaca, yak and silk) or cellulose fibres (plant fibres such as cotton, linen, hemp and bamboo) using natural dyes.

    The craft courses are a hands-on learning experience using ancient natural dyes such as Madder, Weld, and Cochineal, to name a few, in their natural form as well as extract.  You will leave with the knowledge to successfully dye yarn and fabrics with lasting colour to use in your projects at home.

    5 Stars ReviewDebra C. on 12 Nov 2022, "I am now hooked after a super day at Felin Fach, I have never tried dying fiber but have always wanted to have a go. Karen was so very nice and extremely knowledgeable and made me feel at ease. The work area was outstanding. I came away with some wonderful, dyed yarn and fabric a file with all the information required to have a go myself. Highly recommend Felin Fach."
