Would YOU like to transform your textiles with a splash of fresh color?

My students are blown away when they see what they make during their first workshop with me. The words that we hear during the big reveal are "Oh WOW!"




Have you tried making tie dye before only your results were pale and they faded out with washing?

I can teach you how to achieve results that are bright and lasting!

Have you tried making tie dye before only the results bled all over your washing?

Avoid the pink socks and underpants, start with the right information and avoid the color bleed.

Have you searched the internet for information about dyeing fabrics only you found it very confusing and even contradictory?

Learn from a trusted source with twenty eight years of experience.



I started dyeing garments to sell at markets in 1993 and during this time I perfected my methods so my garments did not run or fade when my customers bought them. Later I went on to dye bespoke fabrics for the South African fashion industry where quality was my focus. 



I can share all of this experience with you so you can get great results right from the start. I am available to answer your questions by e-mail and on Facebook in the supporting groups that I have set up there for my students. Get the answers to your specific questions as you experiment with what you learn in the online courses.



You can take as long as you need to to work through the information and I am there to support you all the way with answers to your questions when you experiment with what you have learned.
