Grand and Glorious Gradients with Peggy Doney

About Grand and Glorious Gradients with Peggy Doney

We've all drooled over gradient yarns and items made from their gorgeous colors. Learn a method for doing two-color dye gradients to create your own drool-worthy colorways. Learn how to mix dye stock, prep yarn and fiber for dyeing, and use the recipes we create in class. Put your new recipes to use in the workshop by painting a skein of Superwash Merino/ Silk. There will also be a demonstration calculating amounts of dye for and then painting a roving. You will leave with recipe sheets loaded with 36 sample swatches, your skein, notes, and a helpful spreadsheet for doing the math.

Peggy Doney

    Peggy Doney has been fascinated with color since her first box of crayons. For many years, she has been discovering color recipes using triad, value, and gradient studies. If there is anything that Peggy enjoys as much as creating with fiber and color, it’s sharing that passion with others. From an annual fiber arts gathering in her back yard to teaching workshops for guilds, retreats, festivals, and one-on-one sharing, Peggy likes to pass on her excitement for fiber and color. Peggy knows all the dyeing jokes, has a plethora of dye pots, and now uses her big box of crayons as reference material. She makes her home in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with her fiber-enabler husband, Jeff, and two undyed white dogs.
