Summer Workshop Schedule:
Watercolor Dyeing with Speckles - A Mini-Workshop - $90In this process you will learn how to apply dyes in and onto areas of the yarn to achieve a soft watercolor effect and you will stretch your color muscles further and apply a punch of color by adding speckles. This combination yields a unique and striking effect on your finished skein! Two skeins are included in this workshop, although participants will have the option to purchase additional skeins.
Wednesday, July 26 from 5:30-8:30 pm
Sat., August 12 from 9:30 am-12:30 pm
Resist Dyeing Technique – A Mini-Workshop- $90
We will use the idea of resist dyeing to create unique and striking skeins of sock yarn. This technique, similar to tie dye or shibori, uses water-resistant string to create this unusual effect. You will learn how to weave and tie your skeins and choose colors which speak to you. This process illustrates that the color you leave out is just as important as the color you add. Two skeins are included in this workshop, although participants will have the option to purchase additional skeins.
Sunday, July 23 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm
Wednesday, August 9 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm
Sock Blank Alchemy - A Mini-Workshop - $90
The last in our series of summer dyeing mini-workshops is the Sock Blank Alchemy. In this class you will work with dye on a knitted sock blank as if painting with the dyes. Using either free-hand or stencils, you will create designs, symbols, words of inspiration and good intentions onto the fabric. Once re-knit, your message is secretly contained within the knit garment, but only you will know! Spread a little good magic. Two sock blanks are included in this workshop, although participants will have the option to purchase an additional blank.
Sunday, July 23 from 1:30 to 4:30 pm
Wed., August 16 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm
