Saturday, 1:30 to 4:30 pm

Instructor: Ginny Mutti

All Levels

Course Description:

This class is design to give a basic overview of how to dye wool primarily with synthetic dyes and mostly using wool yarn but the information on dyes, techniques, and how to handle dyes and wool can easily be used on wool material for rug hookers or fleeces for spinners.

Natural dyeing will be discussed and the basic information can be applied to natural dyeing.

Participants will learn about different dyes for wool and how to prepare the wool for dyeing.

Dye equipment and safety will be discussed. Everyone will have a chance to prepare some yarn and will get the experience of seeing white wool magically turn into colors that sheep can only dream about. At the finish of the class one should have the knowledge of what dyes to use, how to use them safely, and how to treat the wool so that the dye is fast and the wool is not damaged.

Course Cost:

$35 class fee + $6 materials fee.
