Have you ever thought it would be super fun to dye your own gorgeous speckled-y, watercolour-y, smooshy, wooshy hand dyed? Are you forever buying gorgeous single skeins of 4ply and want to find the perfect colour to bring them all together? Well, maybe we have the solution.

This is honestly the most fun workshop ever! In our large basement you can spend a couple of hours splashing about with yarn and dyes and colours seeing how they interract and creating your own masterpieces whilst we chat, laugh, talk about crafting and eat snacks. Doesn't that sound perfect?

As part of the lesson you will dye up three mini skeins using different techniques that we talk you through, then we take a little break before finishing up by dyeing a full 100g skein using your favourite techniques or a blend of them from the evening. All dyes and yarns are included on the day - we use 4ply sock wool, a blend of merino and nylon as this is what our acid dyes need (there's no plant based alternative for this particular workshop). You can buy more yarn to dye on the day or to take home with you and small sachets of the dye to play with at home too.

The workshop starts at 11am and runs until 1.30pm.

Workshops are taught by Eleanor Burke - owner and manager who swears a fair bit... Well behaved children are allowed on  but will need to be supervised by a full paying adult too as we have limited space. Tea, coffee, cows milk and a selection of sweets and treats will be provided - you're welcome to bring alternatives or let us know any specialist requirements you have. Workshops are non-refundable but they are exchangeable so if you can't make it you can sell/give your space on or you can let us know and we'll try to do that for you - if you could just let us know what you've arranged.
