#221 Let’s Make Batts by Nellie DeVault, Thursday 9 am - noon
Skill level: Intermediate.
Workshop Description: “Begin at the beginning and carry on until you come to the end.” In this case, we will start at the beginning, making lovely carded batts with one fiber. But there is no end! From one fiber, we’ll make two fiber blends and talk about the whys and wherefores of the fibers we choose to mix and match. At that point, we can start to move into more adventurous territory, adding several fibers, leaving some locks mostly intact, throwing in some noil, sari silk, and whatever else we feel like trying!
Students should bring: A working wheel or drop spindle and any fiber prep tools they wish to use. If any are willing to bring a personal drum carder, that is welcome. I will have mine to share. They may bring anything they would like to try blending.
Material fee: $20 for fleece and blending fibers.
