If you have never tried to dye your own yarn but are intrigued by the idea of creating your own unique skeins, here is the workshop for you. We will explain the basics of home dyeing. Although you will need very few items, it’s important to know and use the proper equipment. We’ll make skeins of wool, silk, and mohair yarns and prepare them for the dye bath. Then it is pure fun and creativity as you use both Cushing and Gay Wool dyes and will learn to mix dyes to make new shades and colors. Students will also make multicolored skeins by dipping and directly painting dye onto skeins. We will show you how unrelated colors can be made to work together by introducing a new color family by the technique of over-dyeing. All materials included with tuition.
