Yarn Dyeing and Crochet Workshop

Dye your own yarn and learn to crochet



3.5 hours 1 to 5 (public classes), 1 to 15 (private) label $45 - $50 ($50 per person when you book for 1-2 students, $45 pp for 3+ students)


In this hands on class you will learn how to crochet and dye your own yarn.

We will be diving straight into the experience of preparing the yarn for dyeing and using colour. We will also discuss common mistakes and how to avoid them.

You will learn the basics of crochet, and what is possible using simple stitches and your own dyed yarn. This will be done through showing examples of my work (some award winning).

Everyone will go home with a bamboo crochet hook, their two skeins of hand dyed yarn and their practice piece of crochet.

A fibre artist, designer, teacher and history nut, I am fascinated by all forms of colour and pattern in daily life as an expression of culture and identity.
My influences come from various parts of history both ancient and modern, and the natural world.

I love teaching and sharing what I know, helping people to stretch their skills and create new experiences.

As a teacher with 25 years experience, I get a real buzz when a student who hasn't tried a specfic craft before - not only masters it, but becomes excited by the ways they can use their new skill.

I started in Jewellery design when I was in my early 20's, then discovered that all the things I love to do (design, dye, draw, felt, paint etc) could be used in the practice of 'Free Form Embroidery'.

I taught the 'Foundation course' in Colour & Design at the International School of Colour & Design.

I am a published textile designer & also run week long textile experiences in Tasmania every January.
I have exhibited many of my pieces in a variety of spaces & had one piece auctioned off to raise money for the Embroiderers Guild of NSW.

I bring all of these experiences to my teaching of Free Form Embroidery & encourage students to explore the potential of this art form.
