Hand-dyeing your own knitting yarn gives you the ability to create something that is truly unique. This workshop is designed to help students create complex, layered colourways on protein fibres and yarns such as wool and silk using acid dyes. We'll be dyeing in the SweetGeorgia Studio and exploring a variety of dye techniques used to create layered or glazed semi-solid colourways as well as other low-water immersion techniques to create subtle, multicoloured yarns. Each student will make at least two hanks of hand-dyed yarn during the class.
Supplies to bring:
• an apron or old clothes that you don't mind getting dye on
• paper and pen for notes
• calculator is handy
• a couple large plastic zip lock bags for taking your wet yarn home in
vinyl/nitrile/latex gloves to protect your hands from dye
Class level: Advanced beginner (previous dye experience is encouraged).
3 hour class - $150 includes all supplies and 2 skeins of yarn to take home.
