Thread 2022: Natural Yarn Dyeing with British Wool

What's on

Ticket Information

Ticket price includes entry to thread festival

A circle of coloured twisted yarns.

This workshop is an introduction to the techniques and methods of natural yarn dyeing, and the vibrant colours that can be achieved through dyeing with responsibly foraged or home grown plants and food waste. Using a variety of weights of British wool yarn, ranging from super chunky to Ria's bespoke 4ply weight yarn spun from Mendip sheep, we will look at the different ways natural dyes can be applied to yarn to create striking effects. You will leave with a variety of mini skeins of yarn naturally coloured with a range of hues, suitable for knitting, crochet, weaving or any other fibre craft.

What do participants need to bring: please bring a notebook and pen, an apron and rubber gloves.
