Triad Dyeing with Peggy Doney

About Triad Dyeing with Peggy Doney

Join us as we explore, hands-on, a method for building a systematic collection of 66 colors from three hues. After covering some basic safety, equipment, and dye stock mixing, you will measure out amounts for new colors using the formulas provided. The class will apply those colors to white, tan, and grey yarns to get a total of 198 color samples! Along the way, you will see color theory in action, as the basic hues and the three yarn colors affect the resultant color, explore the math behind the triad, simple ways to extend the recipes to any amount of fiber or yarn you choose, and more. Everyone will leave with their own recipe notebook and 198 sample swatches, notes, and a link to helpful spreadsheets to do 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.
