Indie Eco Workshops at BiECO

We're so excited to announce a fabulous line up of Indie Eco Workshops taking place at the BrisStyle Indie Eco Market on Saturday 6 November at St Augustine's Church Hall and Grounds, Racecourse Road Hamilton from 9am-2pm.

Brisbane artist Chrys Zantis will grace the markets with her famous interactive Knitting installation, Landscape of Resilience. Chrys will bring needles and hooks, threads, fabric and wool of all colours. So come and knit and sew with Chrys under the beautiful tree and reflect on your inner resilience.

After much demand, Wicked Child Designs will be running another Softie Workshop! Teneale will be on hand to provide help with constructing a basic softie, and all the materials will be provided on the day so you can have it finished to take home. You can then keep it for yourself, give it to someone for Christmas, or even donate it to Softies for Mirabel! Seats are limited and priced at a bargain $15 each, so book a seat quick smart by emailing Teneale now -

Sue from Spoil and Indulge Natural will not only have all their Eco-Friendly Candles and Natural Soaps for sale but she will also have her famous "Kool Candles"! Sue will be conducting interactive Workshops where everyone can make their own colourful fragrance candle in a jar for a special price for the BiECO of $5 each. This is great activity for all ages as there is no heat involved in making the candle and you‘ll be using ECO friendly tiny coloured wax beads along with ribbons and stickers to decorate the jars.

Eco dyer and designer Trish from TrishAlan will be demonstrating the super addictive craft of Kumihimo braiding throughout the day and will have her range of eco dyed threads and kits to purchase.

The BrisStyle Indie Eco Market is proudly supported by Peppermint magazine who will also be there on the day!
