The class is a study of blending fibers for color and texture.

Donna will show samples and discuss color theory and the selection of fibers for blending including:

  • Discussion of fiber characteristics and compatibility for blending
  • Discussion and demonstration of fiber blending techniques using combs, flick carders, hand cards, and drum carders
  • Students will experiment with blending techniques and spin samples on spindles or spinning wheels
  • Depending on time, we will discuss plying

What to bring:

Instructor will provide all fiber for class and have a limited selection of tools available for students to work with.

Students may want to bring their own tools and equipment—wool combs, carders, drum carder, carding board, spindles, or spinning wheel
