SOLD OUT || Dyeing Yarn with Indigo Workshop
at Indigo Hill, 26 Main St. E., Vankleek Hill, Ontario
Sunday, June 26, 2022, 1pm – 4pm
$75 + hst (includes all materials)
Indigo is one of the most iconic of natural dyes, and this workshop will introduce you to its mysteries and potential. You’ll learn how to create a “workhorse” natural indigo vat that we’ll use to dye three skeins of wool yarn, each a different base shade. How the blue indigo interplays with the base shades is fascinating to behold! You’ll learn how to prepare your fibres for dyeing and how to care for dyed fibres. Each participant will come away with three 50g skeins of dyed DK weight wool yarn (50g of each shade), and a recipe and list of suppliers for future vats at home. Join us for this memorable workshop under June’s blue skies!
We recommended that participants bring an apron or wear clothes that they don’t mind getting indigo splashes on. A sunhat is also recommended as we’ll be dyeing in the sunny garden in back of the shop.
