Dying to Dye, a three day intensive yarn dyeing workshop at Hanson House Retreat Center is announcing a Second Session. Enrollment is now open for this fiberlicious retreat, led by Cheryl Potter of Cherry Tree Hill Yarn. Spend three days handpainting and hand dying yarns and fibers for that special wearable art garment you’ve always wanted. Learn tips, tricks and trade secrets! Let Cheryl show you how!
Like Session One, Session Two is limited to 6 participants in order to provide students with ample studio space and personal attention. Opening a second session has necessitated canceling Big Foot Knits with Andi Smith, but we hope to reschedule her class next year!
Anyone who is interested in Dying to Dye Second Session, please contact us immediately to reserve your space, especially if you were previously on a wait list or had scheduling conflicts.
