This class is all about preparing fiber in a creative out of
the box way. We’ll card batts, and rolags with drum carders and blending
boards. We’ll comb fiber with hand combs and hackles, and diz off top
(sometimes called roving, but it’s not and we’ll talk about why!!) We’ll look
at layering and color blending. We'll talk about the function of different
tools, while still maintaining the well-being of the machine. Extra cool tips will be shared like how to
card rolags on a drum carder, and how to diz roving off blending boards and
drum carders. We’ll figure out how to prepare fibers to produce specific kinds
of yarns, as well as layering texture.. Students should bring any fibers they’d
like to card or comb. Multiple types of
drum carders, blending boards, hand combs and an art roving hackles will be
provided for students to use.
No particular skills are needed if student just wants to learn fiber prep, however spinning or felting knowledge is encouraged.
Included materials are assorted fiber for students to use. Students should bring any fibers they’d like to card and are encouraged to bring any fiber prep tools they own.
