Learn how to hand dye yarn or develop your skills in our FelinFach Dye Studio. Located in the north Pembrokeshire countryside, our hands-on workshops are held in a purpose designed Dye Studio. There is a beauty and depth of colour to natural dye that becomes more beautiful with age. Hand dyed colours, dyed with natural dyes may be repeated but they can never be exactly the same - part of the beauty of a handmade product! All the yarn and scarves for sale on this website have been hand dyed with natural dyes by the Tutor of these workshops - Hand Dyed Yarn - Hand Dyed Scarves.
The workshop has one Tutor and a maximum number of six students. We guarantee to hold each workshop irrespective of the number of students unless there is some unavoidable reason to cancel.
