Event description

Description

In this workshop we will explore colour and fibre by dyeing small samples so each participant can start their own "Dyer's Notebook". We'll discover the differences created by using the same dye on different fibre types (including non-superwash vs superwash and unspun fibre vs yarn), and experiment with colour mixing in a controlled way. We'll also discuss accurate measuring techniques and good note-taking practices. This is a great workshop for anyone who has dabbled in dyeing and wants to learn how to create more precise results or deepen their understanding of colour theory.

This workshop is intended for participants with some experience dyeing, and builds on the skills introduced in our Intro to Yarn Dyeing workshop. It is suitable for ages 14 and up. Participants should wear comfortable shoes and old clothes (that they won't mind if they get stained).

This workshop will be taught in English.
