Event description

Description

You don’t have to go further than your kitchen cupboard, garden or park to find plants with which to make a rainbow of natural dyes.

During this workshop you will sprinkle a botanical palette of colours onto a mini-skein set of yarn (100g total).

The unique skill that students will learn is how to botanically speckle- and solid- dye to make a kit of unique, hand-painted yarns. At the end of this class, you will have enough hand-dyed yarn for a shawl, socks or mittens.

"Eat your food & dye with it" a quote from Simone's upcoming book. Included in this workshop you will enjoy a delicious morning tea, home-made with ingredients also used for this dyeing workshop.

Materials include a kit of:

  • 4 mini-skeins of sock yarn (25g/$6 each, 100g total).
  • Gloves,
  • wool-preparation and dye extracts are supplied as part of the workshop. (material cost $40).

You must wear closed-in shoes .


Fridge, microwave & tea making facilities available.

Minimum of 4 students, the class will be cancelled 48 hours prior if the minimum is not met.
