This is a unique workshop at my home in Hammond, Ontario (about 35minute drive east of downtown Ottawa).
I will set up everything needed to dye wool fabric and yarn and you just need to bring yourself! No experience necessary!
Included in the class fees:
- 6 pieces of natural Dorr wool fabric (1/16th of yard each) and 1 skein natural wool yarn (Heritage by Briggs and Little) that will have been washed, soaked and ready for you to dye!
- The use of my dyes and dying equipment. I have Wooly Mason Jar Dye System in both warm and cool colours and will explain how to use them, along with some other acid dyes you are welcome to try.
- We will review the basics of acid dying wool fabric and yarn using the microwave, the stove top and an electric skillet to create a variety of effects.
Please bring an apron or wear old clothes.
Participants must be comfortable with dogs, I live with 3 ;)
