Plant Dyed Nuno Felt Textiles with Gina Mastio

17 - 18 March 2017

In this new course, textiles artist Gina Mastio combines two of her passions, felt making and eco plant dyeing in this creative two day plant/natural fibres course. Perfect for beginners or more experienced creatives of either medium, wishing to learn some of the wonders of natural dyes from plants and how to make your own original textiles pieces. 

Day one you will learn nuno felting, combining silk with merino wool to form a unique nuno felt scarf. You will then discover the eco printing technique, printing your scarf to your own design.

Day two you will make submersion dyes from plant material and learn to felt over a plastic relief pattern to create your own nuno felt cushion. These will then also be eco dyed with the technique of your choice. 

Further experiments with colour from the submersion dyes and eco printing will also be done throughout the course - Two wonderfully creative days to introduce you to some beautiful new techniques.

Places in classes of two days or more can be secured by paying $100 deposit and balance two weeks before class dates.  Deposits can only be paid by phone: 9231 8182.
