Join me in my studio event space where I’ll be teaching you how to dye yarn. Take a look through the pictures of the listing to see the results my lovely customers have made so far!
I’ll be presenting a live dye session with you where you’ll be shown the different techniques I use to dye my colourways.
Then you will be given the equipment and dyes to dye two colourways of your choosing. I have a range of dyes which will allow you to choose any colour family you’d like and we can work together to create a colourway you love.
The plan for the evening is -
1. Live dye session - you get to observe and learn. I’ll be sharing speckling, variegation, tonal dyeing, saturation and more.
2. Dyeing time - you get to dye your own skeins, one after the other. Materials will be available to label the skeins with Dystopic Fibre bands and you can name the colourways also so you have record of the work you did!
3. Food & drink, knit & natter - time at the end of the evening to have a snack, knit on something you might be working on etc.
4. Shopping - I will have a small selection of yarns available on the night for purchase if you’d like.
Food & drink will be provided for the evening - snacks, juices, teas & coffees. Please get in touch if you have allergen requirements etc.
You’ll receive an apron, gloves and a mask for the session. I recommend you come with clothes that you wouldn’t mind getting dye on just in case (it’s not a particularly messy activity but definitely not an event for your Sunday best).
You’ll get to leave with your yarns after the evening. I’m happy to wind them on the night if you’d prefer them wound.
Spaces for the evening are limited as I want to make sure everyone gets any help and guidance they need.
The address for the night is:
3 Ross Street, Many Studios, Glasgow, G1 5AR.
It’s going to be a busy session so please arrive promptly, we’ll get started right away!
Photographed are the results from previous dye workshops - you can see the results were completely personal to each person.
