I am Cathy, and I live in Frome, Somerset in a small bungalow, with a cat who has adopted me, My family live close by and I am often found looking after my 2 small grandsons Felix and Rufus.

Natural dyeing is my passion, not a day goes by where I don't try something new and have a kitchen window sill full of experiments

My Story

hi, I live in fabulous Frome in deepest Somerset, I moved her to be near family, my 2 boys who I  adore


I am an ex Art teacher and lover of all art, design and craft.  I have  always loved fabric and textile art. In 90s I undertook a City and Guilds in textile design course over 2 years, and I  am always questing more knowledge. I am now a member of the Wiltshire spinners, weavers and dyers guild, and studying for the certification in natural dyeing. 

my passion for natural dyeing really expanded over lock down, lots of walks and foraging and time to experiment I  volunteer for a charity and we make sanitary wear for women in disaster zones, and as such i have access to white recycled cottons that I can purchase .

I'm really passionate about reuse, recycle and sustainability. natural dyeing is so eco friendly, I recycle, its vegan, what's not to love!

I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
