Introduction to Dyeing with Acid Dyes

2nd August 2017 - 1.30 pm – 4.30 pm


21st August  2017 - 1.30 pm – 4.30 pm

Acid dyes provide a simple system for use with wool, other animal fibres (including fur, feathers, cashmere and angora), nylon and silk

Acid dye is not acidic, but is set using vinegar. They are chemical dyes and a huge variety of colours can be produced with them.

This workshop will introduce you to acid dyeing and we will dye wool yarn.

You will finish the day with three 20g hanks of dyed yarn plus an acid dye kit so that you can have more adventures with colour at home.

All materials will be provided but you are advised to wear old cloths and bring rubber gloves.

£60 per person
