Acid Dyeing Yarn
In this hands-on workshop, youâll learn the basics of acid dyeing on fingering weight superwash yarn. The workshop will start with some colour theory, before launching into the basics that a beginning dyer needs to know. Chantel will show you the equipment youâll need, the safety precautions you should be taking, the chemicals youâll need to use and how to use them safely, how to mix dye solutions accurately, some cool methods for applying dye to yarn, and finally, how to rinse and prepare your final skein. At the end of three hours, youâll be taking home one full speckle dyed skein plus a solid dyed matching mini, enough yarn to knit a pair of socks or a small shawl.
Morning workshop 9am to 12pm
Afternoon workshop 1pm to 4pm
$225 (includes materials)

I created Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a single space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as Community Highlights.
