Beguiling Blends on Hand Cards, Blending Boards, and Drum Carders

1-2 days

Wonderful options begin with the blending process. The workshop focuses equally on hand-carding and drum-carding. Sampling with hand cards shows how various factors affect the blending process. Drum carding is used to understand the different dynamics that come with blending fibers in quantity. A large batch of fibers is blended by two partners, pooled together and divided among all students. You will learn how to sample and record the processes for future reference.
