Vibrant Vistas: Exploring Color with Handpainting Techniques in Wool Dyeing | June 17, 2023


Join us at the Nome Schoolhouse for an exciting workshop on the art of dyeing with wool. This class, hosted by the Eweniversity, will delve into the fascinating world of handpainting techniques using mini skeins. Discover the magic of adding vibrant colors to wool fibers and yarn.

During the workshop, we will explore the color wheel and its significance in making informed color choices. Gain a deeper understanding of primary, secondary, and tertiary colors as they form the foundation for all other hues. Learn how to harness the power of complementary colors – pairs of colors that lie opposite each other on the color wheel. By combining complementary colors, you can create striking contrasts and intensify the visual impact of your projects. For instance, red and green, blue and orange, and yellow and purple are complementary color pairs that can transform your creations.

Delve further into the captivating realm of the color wheel and complementary colors by experimenting with various combinations in your dyeing projects. These techniques can also serve as a wellspring of inspiration for crafting captivating color schemes in knitting, crocheting, and other fiber arts endeavors.

As part of the class supplies, you will receive a complimentary Nome Schoolhouse cowl pattern featuring simple beginner lace knitting. This pattern will allow you to apply your newfound dyeing skills in a practical and artistic way.

Don’t miss this opportunity to unlock the secrets of dyeing with wool and expand your creative horizons. Join us at the Nome Schoolhouse and embark on a colorful journey that will ignite your passion for fiber arts.

Julie Mangnall has spent more than 40 years enjoying the rhythmic joy of spinning wool into yarn. She began spinning the first year she and her husband Terry were married, after he managed to get a spinning wheel ordered from Ashford in time for Christmas. They have raised purebred Columbia, Cotswold, Romney and Oxford. Even after dispersing their herd a few years ago, they have remained active with the North Dakota Lamb and Wool Producers Association. In 2021, they were named Producers of the Year for the NDLWPA for their extensive work in promoting wool in the fiber arts.

Jeanne Roster has been a hand spinner for about 17 years. She has been involved in fiber demonstrations at NDSU, North Dakota State Fair and Fort Ransom Sodbusters. Jeanne and Julie tag-team on classes at Fiber Arts Festival, Nome Schoolhouse, and other locations.
