9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Julie Asselin & Jean-Francois Mallette
Colors play an important role in our life, we are surrounded by them, they influence our emotions and the way we see the world—how does that translate to knitting, textiles, and your handmade wardrobe?
Let's explore color theory, especially how colors interact with each other and how they are perceived, how they play a role in our finished garments. Learn about the different types of fibers and yarn construction and the core principles behind dyeing protein (animal) fibers using acid dyes. Julie will guide you through the whole process of yarn dyeing, helping you in creating thoughtful colors. You will leave this class with knowledge plus the confidence (and your own hand dyed yarn to prove it!) to navigate the hand-dyed world.
