Eco dye course in Sydney and hat making course

Here are some shots from the eco dye course I ran last week chez moi. Five lovely ladies and myself enjoyed tea, coffee, cake and yummy lunch as we created colour from leafy, petally, barky bits and pieces we all brought to the table and dye pot.

I am currently taking names for the next eco dye course I will be running on Friday 4th September. $160 includes materials for samples and scarf, plus a light lunch and morning tea. Come enjoy an intimate course in a friendly environment. This will be my last dye course for this year. Contact me on ginamastioATyahooDOTfr

Bubble bubble, toil and trouble...

I am also running a felt hat making workshop on Wednesday 29th July if you feel like learning a new skill in that direction. Contact me on the same address. Cost is $150 including one bag of fine coloured merino wool, (or white if you prefer to dye your own at a later date such as at the next course), morning tea and a light lunch, plus lots of laughs and creative fun. Come express yourself.


  1. Thank you Gina for a wonderfully inspiring day! You are so generous to have opened your home to us and to have shared a wealth of knowledge about textiles and dyeing. I have learnt so much in four hours and I can't wait to get started on my own creations at home. It was also a treat to see and admire your nuno felt designs - they are exquisite and truly one of a kind. Thanks again x

  2. Thank you Abi, it was wonderful to meet you and share these skills with you. I feel very lucky to have met such lovely people and share quality moments in a fun and friendly home environment. Keep exploring and enjoying. Gina
