What is Dye Camp?

  • 4 day course, starting with basic dyeing techniques, and allowing for lots of playing and experimentation. Learn how to mix colours and repeat results consistently. Learn a variety of dyeing techniques including kettle dyeing, hand painting, ombre dyeing, dyeing gradations, experimental techniques and more.
  • small class sizes with very individual instruction and direction. Each student works on projects they determine for themselves. This course is equivalent to private lessons, with lots of one-on-one instruction
  • returning students are welcome! We will spend some time with you to talk about what you’d like to work on in your time here. Consider it a week of guided individual study.

$600 course and materials (+HST)
Additional Studio Day (optional) $95 + HST

A $100 deposit will be required upon acceptance into the course.

Yarn: In order to allow each student to work with yarns of their choice, yarn (with the exception of yarn for samples) is not included in the material fee. Yarn may be purchased from us or you may choose to bring your own. Please do not bring yarn from other dyers to “overdye” (out of respect for their work). A price list will be provided early so that you’re aware of what’s available to you and how much to budget.

Travel and accommodation is your responsibility. There are B&B’s, motels, a bigger hotel and some small cottage resorts/rental cottages, etc. We even have a small space right at the studio available for rent. We will send you information about local accommodation, along with recommendations and information about local amenities. We can also link you with other students who wish to share accommodation and travel.
