Description

About the Workshop

During this workshop you will learn how to dye yarn in your own kitchen using food colouring (like Kool Aid or other types of food colours). These are acid dyed that are gentle to you and your pans and are available in most grocery stores. 

Learn different techniques to acchieve your favorite colours on your own yarn. Either your favorite is semisolid, multicoloured (variegated), ombrè (long colour change) or speckled yarn - you will learn how to dye it yourself during these two hours. You will also learn how to prepare the yarn for dyeing, and how to make a hank out of your balls of yarn. You will find out which yarn types can be dyed with acid dyes, and which that can not. And let us not forget, you will learn what equipment you will need. 

This course is only theoretical, there will be no demonstration or dyeing in this workshop. This is due to limitations to the location of the workshop. No foreknowledge is needed. If you would like to try different methods of making hanks by hand, bring (white) yarn from home.

All participants will get a starters kit so that they can try to dye their own yarn at home. The "Dye It Yourself"- KIT contains 3 packs of Kool Aid and Ninapetrinas own booklet describing how to do it!

Nina has been handdyeing yarn since 2012 when she opened the yarnstore Ninapetrina.no. Being ever curios, she has tried every techninque you can imagine using professional acid dyes. Now you can learn the tricks that will make your homedyed yarn look like what the pro indie dyers are making! (This course can be held in norwegian if there are no English-speaking participants).
