Self Patterning Yarn Dyeing Workshop with Debbie Tomkies

Saturday 5th May 2018 | 10am - 4pm


If you’ve admired the magic of commercial self-patterning and self-striping yarns and wondered how it’s done, you’ll love this workshop!

Dye expert Debbie Tomkies will be teaching you how to plan your pattern, choose your colour scheme, set up your skein and dye it in your own unique colourway. 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!

Suitable for: This course is aimed at dyers who have been on Debbie’s Introduction to Dyeing course or are already familiar with hand-dyeing and want to learn this fascinating and versatile technique. There will be time for experimentation and exploration of basic colour theory as well as lots of fun of course!

All yarns, dyes and materials are included, however, you will need to bring some basic stationery items for colourway planning: Coloured pens/pencils, a notebook and pencil, ruler. You may also find it useful to bring some inspiration images for colour ideas – photographs, magazine pages, brochures, catalogues etc. (or bring a tablet/ipad and we can do a bit of google-image-hunting!).


Refreshments and lunch will be provided on the day.



A special 10% discount voucher is also included. This can be used once in store off any purchases.

Once purchased you will receive a letter explaining more about the day.
