Learn how to create your own unique colours using 3 prime colours. You will learn how to use environmentally friendly acid (vinegar) based dyes and how to mix colours to get the shade that you want. In this workshop we will work with the 3 prime colours, Magenta, Yellow and Cyan, and 2 'worker' colours of Red and Blue to create 50 new shades of colour. Each dye bath is different, so every colour produced will be a delightful surprise.
This workshop is designed for the beginner dyer. You may keep your yarns and use them for a special knitting, crochet, embroidery, tapestry or other project.
I have developed my own range of dyes that are not available elsewhere. If you like these dyes and the colours that they produce, the dyes will be available for sale.
Start time: 10 am
It generally takes about 4 hours to dye all the yarns but this may vary depending on the dye baths.
