Carding Landscapes. With Ashley Martineau. 10-4 PM

CARDING INSPIRING COLORWAYS.  With Ashley Martineau of How to Spin Yarn. Saturday, August 20, 2016.  10 AM-4 PM.  $75.00 per person, fiber included.  $25.00 deposit holds your space. 


What to Bring: Spinning Wheel, Fiber Prep Equipment (Carder, Hand Cards), Extra Bobbins, Fiber to play with.


We will begin with CARDING: Landscapes - preparing fiber inspired by a landscape. Choose a landscape card during the class, and learn how to turn it into a breathtaking colorway using multiple techniques on a drum carder. Learn different methods of spinning art batts to keep the landscape cohesive as a yarn, and not have the colors get lost or muddied during the spinning process.


Lunch break around 12:30


In the afternoon we will play with CARDING Moods - where we will blend fiber based on how we feel or experience life in color. Choose a mood during this class and card it into a colorway, then tell the class what inspired you. Our final carding lesson will be carding a mood at random. Then we will learn more techniques for preparing these batts to spin into yarns.


Buckets of fiber will be provided!
