We are happy to announce that we are going to be teaching two workshops at La Maison Tricotée en Février. 

An Introduction to Hand-Dying 

Colors 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? 

Let’s explore color theory, especially how colors interact with each other and how they are perceived, how they play a role in our finished garments. Learn about the different types of fibers and yarn construction and the core principles behind dyeing protein (animal) fibers using acid dyes. 

We will guide you through the whole process of yarn dyeing, helping you in creating thoughtful colors. 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. 

Sunday, February 17th | 10 am to 13:30 pm at La Maison Tricotée

Different Yarn-Dyeing Techniques 

Different Yarn-Dyeing Techniques for Different Results. Take your yarn dyeing to another level by exploring how different dye application methods yield different results. 

This class is focused on experimenting with different ways of applying dyes to yarn to create a multitude of different patterning results. We will be talking about how temperature, acid level, water quantity, length of skeins, application methods, resists, and auxiliary materials affect your final creation.

Sunday, February 17th |  2:30 am to 6 pm at La Maison Tricotée
