#205  Amy Tyler – Blending Board Basics and More   Full day  Thursday 9am-4pm  Bldg 9 South $100

Skill level: All Levels Welcome

Workshop Description: The blending board is not just a glorified hand carder or a low-tech version of a drum carder. It is a delightfully simple but incredibly versatile tool. It has obvious uses for blending already prepared fibers. We will cover such blending strategies in this workshop to create rolags, batts, and rovings. In addition, we will explore the use of accessory tools for the blending board. Along the way, we will make cotton-wool blends, blends for tweed yarns, and blends for garnet yarns (both subtle and extreme). And we’ll explore ways of preparing fiber “paintings” that can then be wet felted. Get ready to be surprised and energized by this fantastic fiber tool.

Participants should bring: a blending board with brush and dowel(s). Students may want to bring a spindle or spinning wheel to spin from the fibers that they prepare.

Material Fee: $30  Includes samples for examination, fibers, notebook with handouts, sundry supplies.
