Introduction to yarn dyeing - Bright British Wool - 20th October - 12pm - 4pm
Join me, Becky of Ovis Yarns and explore the world of hand dyed yarn. This special edition of my Introductory workshop is especially for UK Wool Week 2018.
We will explore 4 British yarns - all sourced, processed and spun in the UK:
Bluefaced Leicester & Masham
We will explore how each base takes the dye differently and the different properties of each. The workshop will include 25g mini skeins of each yarn and then a 100g skein of the base you like the most.
I will explain how I prep yarn for dyeing, and then show you various dyeing techniques on the tester mini skeins. You will then be able to create a truly unique skein of British yarn for you to take home and create something wonderful with.
If you would like to purchase additional skeins, please let me know in advance and I will invoice you.
All materials and hot and cold drinks and refreshments will be provided.
This workshop is strictly limited to just 5 participants, and is suitable for ages 8 and up.
