Immerse yourself in colour and cotton yarn!
This fun interactive dyeing class for crocheters covers all the bases. When you start to crochet, you love all different yarns. When you start to dye your own yarn, you start to see that some techniques don’t always suit your project. From bright childrens clothing to Amigurumi and specialty doily; projects - dying your own cotton makes for original and unique quality items.
With costs of some yarn increasing due to foreign freight, don't walk by bulk spools of cotton, you can use this for outstanding items in the colours you love.
Join Lynley Buckley, current President of Crochet Guild Australia and she will give you some insight in cotton dying for all sorts of crochet projects.
Participants will go home with two 50gm quantities of cotton, dyed but needing the final rinse and dry. You will learn how to paint the yarn in a couple of different techniques. Demonstration of other speciality techniques included where time available.
A class document with loads of tips and steps to dye cotton/plant based fibers, plus stockists of bare yarn and dyes in Australia.
