Dye Camp

Come dye with me!

Every year we have an open studio Dye Day in conjunction with our Annual Barn Sale. It is all kinds of fun and every year I promise everyone that I will have more dye/color related events and classes. I miss teaching quite a bit and have decided that there is no time like the present. So here we go!

As most of you know, I have an affinity for camps. So my color-loving, fiber-possessed friends...

Welcome to Blue Moon’s Dye Camp Sessions!

We started our Dye Cammp Sessions this past summer and they have been such a big hit and so much fun that we are going to continue throughtout the year. So if you have anyhting you'd like to see us offer please do let us know.

Each session is a stand alone session, so you can choose the one(s) that appeal the most to you. (Or, of course, you can take them all!)

Most sessions will be one day long with a 30 minute break for lunch.

Hours wiil vary between classes, so be sure to read the details about what one you are attending.

Since we are rural and I am trying to keep the cost as affordable as I can (dye is expensive), I'm asking you bring your own lunch.
 
Space is limited for each session based on what we are doing in that session, the time we have, and the space we need.

**Note: All Camp Sessions will include “dye basics”.

Sunday June 2nd - Stash Revitalizing Over Dye Day!!!

A yarn stash is what makes some of us able to sleep at night.

Now that is some serious peace of mind. Every once in awhile our stash needs a little refreshing. Maybe some of those colors do not quite speak as loudly to our creative selves as they did when they were sitting on that shelf in the yarn store....

Sunday April 14th - Making the Grade!

Gradients, the progression of color either from the dark end of one hue’s spectrum to it's light end or… the gradual movement from one color into the next or the gradual tinting or shading of a color. In this camp session, we're going to each make our very own gradient series. After we go through some dye basics, we will explore the aspects differing types of gradients before you will choose which type of gradient set you would like to make. We will then discuss and measure...

Saturday May 4th -Sock Yarn Dyeing, Striping, Pooling, Speckling

How many ways are there to dye sock yarn? As many as you can imagine! In this camp session we will learn and experiment with as many of these as we can squeeze in to a day. After we go over some basic dye principles we will discuss and experiment with dye techniques for specific knit results. Our explorations will include all kinds of dye patterns (striping, pooling, speckling, grading) for sock yarn and therefore sock knitting. We will also dye a sock blank!! There will be math and a...
