Join Blackwattle on their alpaca farm in Murrumbateman for a beginners yarn dyeing workshop.

During the day you will learn:
basic colour theory
an understanding of protein fibres and yarn blends
the equipment and consumables required to hand dye yarn
basic dye techniques and colour application methods

You’ll then apply all these new learnings as you create two of your very own and totally unique hand dyed skeins of yarn to take home!

Workshop costs includes:
2 x 100 gram skeins of our Grevillea Lux (4ply/fingering weight) yarn
use of our dye studio tools and dyes
morning and afternoon tea
gourmet lunch
all day tea and coffee

What to bring: Your inspirational photos and colour swatches, plus a sense of adventure as everything will be supplied.

During the lunch break you will also have the opportunity to meet and hand feed our alpacas and llamas! (weather permitting).

Please advise us of any special dietary requirements in your booking form so we can accommodate you as best possible.
