SAQA Central Canada member ELIZABETH ABBOTT is sharing her ACID DYES workshop at the Tett Centre March 7-8, 2015 in Kingston

Acid Dyes

Dates:  Sat - Sun. March 7 - 8, 2015
Time: 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
Instructor: Elizabeth Abbott
Cost: $120.00 members, $150.00 non-members
Located on the waterfront, King Street W.
at Ellerbeck Ave.
this is a workshop sponsored by the
Kingston Handloom Weavers and Spinners
Studio on second level
It would be great to have a few more participants to expand the number of samples everyone would get to take home.  This workshop teaches basic skills that can then be applied to any other type of dying you would like to try.    
This will be a controlled acid dye workshop where students will dye colour wheels on protein fibres using different primary colours and then dye to specifications such as overdyeing or dyeing to a sample either on paper or an actual yarn. 
Students  will be fully comfortable with dyeing after this course using proportions and math needed to reproduce a colour.  This will also include dyeing with food colours.
Specifically directed to those who like to dye wool rovings/yarns for spinning or other needle work.
