Sitting Knitting - hand dyeing workshop

Skeins of hand dyed yarn drying on the tree at Sitting Knitting during a hand dyeing workshop by Debbie Tomkies from DT Craft & Design

Hot on the heels of our workshop in a marquee with the London Guild in April we had another first in May when Debbie ran a hand dyeing workshop at Sitting Knitting in Sutton Coldfield – our first outdoors workshop!

Sitting Knitting is run by Rachel from a beautiful building with a great space for workshops.  However when we arrived the sun was shining and the decision to move the tables for the workshop outside was unanimous.

Everyone produced a fabulous array of hand dyed yarns and before long the garden was blooming with brightly coloured skeins and the tree proved to be an excellent yarn drer.

We had a lovely day at Sitting Knitting and have already booked some course dates to go back in September and December – keep checking our Workshops page for more details

To see some examples of the skeins knitted and crocheted up and for more information on Sitting Knitting please visit their Facebook page by clicking here
