Subject: Dyeing, Spinning
Instructor: Kate Larson
Share:

Let the complex colors and the wooly texture of tweed fabric draw you in! The subdued hue of tweeds begins as a collection of shockingly vibrant colors. Join us as we explore the intersection of easy color theory, spinning fibers, and history. Use dyed locks, rovings, and combed tops to make your own blends, yarns, and fabrics. Try your hand at dyeing with both natural and synthetic materials to increase your color explorations! Students must be able to spin and ply a continuous yarn.

Tuition: $630.00
