What Our Students Say

  • I’ve spent the weekend at the 2 day natural dying course, it’s been fantastic. Gingerfields is a stunning setting and the course has left me buzzing. I’ve learnt so much and have come away with the most incredible colour swatches. Kerry is very relaxed and this can’t help but rub off and her creativity is infectious. I would highly recommend a visit for one of her courses.

    Kerry Armstrong

  • I attended Kerry’s 2 day natural dying course in the summer, the 2days were packed with lots of information and we made and took home dye baths to carry on our dying journey.Thank you kerry for sharing your knowledge and creativity with me.



  • I completed the organic gardening course earlier this year and really enjoyed the mix of information provided by Kerry, and the hands on approach. Some of my highlights were building a hugelkulter and observing and tasting the fruit and vegetables Kerry has growing on her small holding. I learned a great deal whilst having an absolutely wonderful time in a beautiful setting! What’s more, I found that there were things I had taken away with me without realising and I can’t wait for the next year of growing! I will definitely be trying out one of the other courses soon, particularly as Kerry is so welcoming and always happy to help in between sessions as well as during.
