This exciting, fun workshop is an excellent introduction to hand dyeing yarn for beginners.

In this fun-packed, friendly day, dye expert Debbie Tomkies will teach you how to prepare and mix colours and dye luscious, solid shades with Hue & Dye synthetic dyes from DT Craft & Design. There will also be the opportunity to try your hand at rainbow dyeing and colour blending. You will dye a lovely 100g skein of yarn in your own choice of colours. A knit or crochet pattern from Debbie’s design collection is also included so you can make your yarn into something special as soon as you get home! See what people have said about Debbie’s courses here.
