Inspiring!

It was a wonderful day on every level. The fellow participants, the gracious hosts, the alpaca break, gluten free snacks and the workshop with Tania! I have continued exploring dyeing techniques since the course and have been loving it!

Fantastic!

Tania Love’s natural dying workshop was outstanding. She provided the group with practical information, as well as creative inspiration on how to utilize these skills in our own artistic practice. The setting was relaxing and welcoming. What a treat! Thank you Tania and SHED Chetwyn Farms!
