Love hand-dyed yarn? Inspired by your favorite indie dyers? Here's your chance to play with color and learn how to create your own bespoke colorways. Nicole Frost of Frost Yarn will teach you everything you need to know.
This class is a full scale "zero to 100" dye workshop covering 5 techniques:
-direct application painting
-sock blank painting (thickening dyes and using stencils).
Students will go home with 4 full-size skeins dyed in each technique, a printed sock blank, and more!
Cost: $300 which includes:
-4 skeins of superwash/nylon
-1 pre knit sockweight blank
-Laminated dye ratio and color theory chart
-60 cc luer lock syringe
You'll learn how to:
-pull colors from reference photos
-the chemistry behind saturated, locktight bleedproof dye
-every major technique on the market & what they look like knit up
-how to reverse engineer the dye job to get the results you want in your finished project

Your tuition investment in Dye Hard Yarns will pay many returns back into the fiber arts community. Chastity (the owner) is launching a full scale, publicly accessible dye studio that you'll have access to after the class series. New sweater or shawl pattern you wanna dye your own unique colors for? You'll be able to pick your favorite fiber base and hop in to a guided dye night with all the professional tools at your disposal, continuing education workshops and incredible new colorways exclusive to Dye Hard Yarns.
Chastity and I are also very passionate about diversity, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) representation and inclusion in the indie dyer market. I've decided to open a scholarship spot in every workshop I teach in 2020 for a person of color to learn the hand dyed trade. Your materials and class fee will be covered, and I will personally help you launch your business - from finding suppliers, Research & Developing your signature look, how to set up an online marketplace, and whatever other mentorship needs you might have. For more information on how that's gonna work, I'll be announcing it today on Instagram (@frostyarn) and my youtube channel www.youtube.com/nicolefrostyarn
