Dye Another Dye
Colour to Dye For!
1400 - 1800
This exciting (and a bit messy!) workshop will take you through all of the main processes of dyeing both raw fleece/fibre ready for spinning into yarn and also the basics of dyeing a pre-spun skein of yarn! The session is suitable for both absolute beginners who are learning from scratch and also those with some prior knowledge, who will be able to develop new techniques using the dye equipment on a variety of unusual fibres.
We will provide a wide variety of fibres, yarns and equipment for you to try such as alpaca, lamb locks, silk, trilobal nylon and various raw sheep fleece. Feel free to also bring along some of your own fibres if you would like to make some truly unique dye art!
Learn about the different techniques used to dye such as;
- Dyeing fleece and fibre prior to spinning
- Dyeing pre-spun skeins
- Speckled Yarns
- Gradient Yarns
- Tonal Yarns
- Dyeing for Fractal spins
- Combination techniques on mixed fibre batts & yarns
