Dyed-WoolsDescription:  Spot dyed wool provides movement in your hooking with the color changes in the wool, whether wild color or muted color combinations. And the best part of using a spot dyed wool is you don’t have to constantly start and stop strips to change colors, the color flow is in the wool strip!  

In this workshop you will learn traditional spot dyeing and some special techniques to achieve very interesting wool.  Basic knowledge of the color wheel is helpful but no previous dyeing experience is needed.  

This is a hands-on workshop and everyone will have an opportunity to try one or more techniques and will take home large samples of wool dyed in class. 

Teacher will contact students prior to class: No

Level:  Basic – students must have basic rug hooking knowledge & experience. Basic knowledge of the color wheel is helpful but no previous dyeing experience is needed.    



Supply description: Samples of dyed wool and handouts.

Students Need to Bring: Since this is a hands-on dyeing workshop, students may wish to protect their clothing and wear an apron. Pen and paper for notes.

Dyed-Wools2Bio: Marian started dyeing yarn in 1968 while learning weaving. When starting rug hooking in 1994 she continued dyeing wool to get specific colors for her rugs, always preferring very mottled colors. Eventually she took classes from Maryanne Lincoln to learn more about matching colors and from Pro-Chem to learn more about the actual dyes. She continued to dye more and more for herself and a few friends and when retiring from the healthcare field it was a natural progression to start a small dyed wool business. 

Marian’s work has been featured in publications such as Rug Hooking Magazine. Four of her rugs received awards in the Celebration of Hand-Hooked Rugs. She has served as president of the ATHA Brandywine Rug Hooking Guild in West Chester, Pennsylvania from 2015 to present. Marian sells her hand-dyed wool at rug hooking events through her business - Wooly Dye Works.
