Learn how to dye your own wool with common household products!
We'll explain the various ways to dye yarn using a microwave oven and help you choose complimentary colour combinations and a technique to dye your own 100 gram skein of 4 ply wool/nylon sock yarn.

Had a really great afternoon - so interesting and informative! Lovely to sit with like-minded folk and ‘play’ with colour, and fascinating to see how different our results were! Now I just need to make something to do my lovely yarn justice.
I had a great time experimenting on this short course. I came away with a lovely skein of my own creation. thanks.
This was a great workshop and so much fun! Debbie guided us through the colourwheel, and explained the equipment we were using (all readily available and unexpensive). Wandering around the shop for a skein of wool to use as inspiration was the hard part as there are so many gorgeous wools. The actual dying was such fun and I am very pleased with the resulting skein, which I intend to make into a cowl. I also have some ideas for more skeins to do here at home ...
This was a really interesting and fun workshop. Debbie made the whole process of learning very accessible with her friendly and gentle approach and explained everything really well. Everyone's interpretation was very different and each skein of yarn was so unique and beautiful, the results were just amazing! I really enjoyed it and am so pleased with my newly dyed skein of yarn. A really enjoyable and fun evening, highly recommended!
Thank you Mandy! We're so glad you enjoyed the workshop
