What to expect


The mission statement of DyeHaus workshops is to provide a stimulating, supportive and relaxing atmosphere where knowledge is shared and participants supported.

The studio is well equipped for any dye adventure with great outdoor facilities.


About the class


Classes are carefully planned and executed and extensive handouts provided.

Theory and technical details are given in sufficient detail to allow students a thorough understanding of the dyeing process. Every class is different and new elements and aspects of a process are incorporated.

Such a pleasure to be in the studio with all of its charm. Up the Blue Mountains, fresh air, ideas, and inspiration from the generous and knowledgeable Bettina.

A beautiful day spent in the mountains experimenting with natural dyes. A magical day of sharing.

I've come back to my little studio, recharged and inspired.

You really do have a slice of paradise on top of Mt Irvine.
