Yarn Dyeing Workshop with Julie Asselin
Colours play an important role in our life, we are surrounded by them, they influence our emotions and the way we see the world—how does that translate to knitting, textiles, and your handmade wardrobe? With Julie Asselin, explore colour theory, especially how colours interact and how they are perceived, how they play a role in our finished garments. Learn about the different types of fibres and yarn construction and the core principles behind dyeing protein (animal) fibres using acid dyes. Julie will guide you through the whole process of yarn dyeing, helping you in creating thoughtful colours. You will leave this class with knowledge plus the confidence (and your own hand dyed yarn to prove it!) to navigate the hand-dyed world.
Each student receives 2 full skeins of fingering weight yarn to dye.
Don't forget, Julie will have a Trunk Show from 12 to 5pm! ;)
