The class will also cover topics such as choosing harmonious colors, measuring dye in both liquid and powder form, how to hand-paint yarn, how to dye yarn via immersion techniques, rinsing yarn, safety, compiling materials if you want to do dyeing at home, and other topics. At the end of the workshop, students will take with them two skeins of hand-dyed, hand-painted yarn, and class handouts. This class is perfect for people who have no previous experience with dyeing, or for those who love to dye and don't have space to do it in. The yarn dyed in this class would also be perfect to use for Beginning Knitting on July 20 or Introduction to Fair Isle Knitting on July 21.
