Hand dyeing workshops

Make your own self-patterning yarns with sock blanks

...to self patterning socks!

This course is ideal for complete beginners as well as for those who have some dyeing experience but would like to produce their own self patterning yarn.

A sock blank is a large rectangle of machine-knit fabric. The knitted fabric is dyed using a range of fun techniques to produce wonderful patterns, simple stripes or beautiful graduated yarns. Once dyed the blank is unravelled allowing you to knit straight from the fabric (or wind into balls) and make a pair of fabulous matching socks! Click here for more information on our sock blanks

All materials are provided and you will go home with a lovely range of colour samples, your lovely dyed sock blank and a choice of knitting patterns, ready for you to knit up into socks, mitts, gloves (or whatever takes your fancy!).

The workshops run from 10am - 4pm and cost £45. To book your place on a workshop online please click on the button below for the workshop you wish to attend. Alternatively call Debbie on 0161 718 3818 or click here for our contact details to pay by cheque or postal order.
