Autumn wool dyeing workshop

19th Apr 2022

‘Our Little Gallery’ is offering locals a chance to learn the art of wool dyeing. They will be holding a workshop in the Community Garden at the Guyra Neighbourhood Centre on Sunday, May 1st. Particpants will receive two skeins of sock yarn and will be instructed in the techniques to create their own unique colour scheme.
The workshop will be led by Louise Pearson who encourages anyone who has an interest in learning something new to come along. Sock yarn is a 4ply yarn which is 80% merino and 20% nylon for extra durability which can be used for a range of items including socks, gloves, shawls and more.
Louise is passionate about her craft and wants to share the fun of creating with others.
“What I love most is to watch the alchemy unfold, seeing the colours emerge and the final result,” she said. “I hoping to see others come along and share the fun of creating with us.”
“If anyone wants to know more they are welcome to call into ‘Our Little Gallery’ to see examples and find out what is involved. You can do the workshop by yourself or with a friend and it would make a great gift idea for Mother’s Day – either give the workshop itself as a gift or give the gift of yarn that you have dyed.”
The workshop is being held on Sunday, May 1st from 10am to 2.30pm. The cost is $60 which includes two skeins of yarn and all dyes.
You can book in by phoning 0478 170 862, by email, message on facebook or call into ‘Our Little Gallery at 140 Bradley Street, Guyra.
