Dyeing Taster Session
Have you ever fancied a try at making that super fancy, speckled-y, hand-dyed yarn but don't want to shell out on the full kit and kaboodle? Then this is the perfect little taster lesson for you! You will have the opportunity to dye three mini skeins with three different effects before finishing the lesson by dyeing a full 100g skein of sock yarn, all of which you can take home on the day to dry yourself or let us dry it for you and pick up at a later date. We provide the yarn, the dyes to use on the day, the appropriate safety gear and there will be the opportunity to buy more undyed yarn and dyes on the day. We will talk a little about colour theory and the science behind the dyes but this is definitely a taster session for people who just want a fun little mess around - it's by no means a professional course!
This class is suitable for anybody who fancies giving it a go. The yarn we dye is necessarily wool and the lesson will take place downstairs in the shop, there are 14 steps down to the basement and the entrance and loo are at the top. Your clothes will get messy so please wear scruffy things!
Please note, if there aren't any dates available that means that they've been sold out. Feel free to contact us but there's not usually anything we can do. I suggest following us on Facebook and signing up the the mailing list so that you hear first about the lessons and then book as soon as you can!!
All evening classes start at 6.30pm sharp and finish at 8.30pm. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but feel free to bring your own if you have fancy or unusual teas/milks/sweeteners.
All classes are taught by the magnificent Eleanor Burke, manager here at Knit Nottingham, who is an obsessive knitter, crocheter and yarn lover with the patience of a saint! Kids and young adults are welcome but she does have a penchant for fruity language...
Full payment is to be made in advance. Lessons are non-refundable – please only book if you're are going to be available on that date. In the case of illness please let us know as soon as possible and before the lesson begins and we will endeavour to book you onto an appropriate alternate date but this won't always be possible and we reserve the right not to as the lessons are sold as non-refundable. Lessons are transferable so if you can't come you can send a friend instead (ideally, you'd let me know so I can write that in the diary).
