Dyeing embroidery threads with Margaret Fulwood on Sunday 3rd March 10.30 – 12.30pm
An opportunity to experiment producing your own dyed embroidery threads in a range of shades & colours. All yarns & dyes will be provided, as well as the necessary equipment. Please bring a plastic apron & a tray to transport your threads home.
Provided: A range of white cotton skeins of threads in different thickness prepared for dyeing, a selection of dye baths in different colours, charts of how to mix dyes to produce different colours, plastic gloves, plastic bags for each sample dyed, labels and information sheet. The samples produced will need to soak until the next day, so there will be lots of rinsing to do at home the following day for each participant. The threads will then take time to dry, before storing as a skein or wrapping onto cotton reels or around folded card.
