At Peak District Yarns we are obsessed with colour!! Come and spend a day with us, and share our obsession. It’s a day of playing with colour, where you’ll dye 300g of yarn to take away with you at the end of the day.
We start with a discussion of colour theory. How to know what colours work well together, and how to choose the colours for your yarn. We’ll then spend some time exploring the magic of colour mixing, and from this create a mini skein set of five contrasting colours for you to take away.
We’ll then discuss how to design and create hand-dyed yarn for a two-skein project, which you will then go on to dye.
300g of yarn are included in the price of this workshop:
- a set of five 20g mini skeins (choose either a Merino DK or Merino 4-ply Sock Yarn)
- two 100g skeins of yarn (choose either a Merino DK or a Merino 4-ply Sock Yarn)
Maximum 6 participants per workshop.
