People Ask if I use dyes. My answer is all the time!
After a fun morning dyeing fleece in a microwave using Easy Peasy Dyes, these were the results I achieved.
Note my notebook - an essential tool for the dyer!
Dyeing fibre is fun whether you dye with Natural or Easy Peasy Dyes. My dyeing courses are a voyage of discovery. Whether it be a Natural or Easy Peasy Dye for wool or Easy Peasy Cotton Dyeing you can be certain that you will learn a great deal. The benefits of attending a dyeing course is to eliminate trial and error, maximise your results and ensure that your time and effort converts into the best dyeing results.
Each student is given an Ideas/ Project book in which they can write notes during the course and add to as they progress with their chosen craft.
Taking down dyeing notes is all part of understanding the ratio of quantities of fibre to dye and water, this has to be learnt, that is why a blank Ideas Project Notebook is given to you on the course. Your notes will be key to successful dyeing in the future.
Whichever course you choose, you keep what you have dyed, so if you have a specific project in mind, be sure to tell Sue when you book your course. A resume of typical courses are set out below so you have some idea about your course content.
All the courses are hands on, so do not wear your best outfit, be comfortable. Bring rubber gloves and apron. A short 20 minute lunch will be provided.
If you would like to try a combination of methods, this is best done over a weekend. There is further information on accommodation available locally on this web site www.kentselhamvalley.co.uk
If you are interested in this or any other course, please contact Sue to discuss your requirements.
