Find the skills you need… to make the things you want…
From learning to knit socks from your own handspun to learning how to dye yarn to becoming a weaver, we have something for you in the School. With so many courses to choose from, it can be challenging to know where to start — so we’ve hand-picked and curated these collections of courses and workshops to help you learn the skills you need.
Learn the process of creating your first garment from your handspun yarn. Discover how to select the kind of fibre that will give you the garment you desire, how to sample your handspun yarn, how to calculate the measurements of your yarn, how to store large amounts of plies for bigger projects, and how to swatch your yarn before starting your garment.
Want to learn to dye wool and silk yarn and fibre? Start with acid dyes which are designed for protein fibres and learn how dyes are mixed, blended, and diluted to create the hues and depths of shade that you want in your yarn. After completing this learning path, you’ll be able to create your own solid shade, tonal, handpainted, low-water immersion, and even self-striping yarns.
