#434 Julie Benac – Carding for the Perfect Prep    Half day Saturday 1-4pm Bldg 10 South  $50

Skill level: Beginner

Workshop Description:  Learn how to prepare and blend fiber for all types of spinning and felting, using hand cards, manual, and electric drum carders. Students will learn basic fiber preparation for carding, the importance of TPI, and how to use hand cards to make rolags for the most basic wool spinning prep. An intro to drum carding will show how to select a drum carder, its safe use and operation, methods for blending fibers, blending colors, and using add-ins for art batts. We'll also discuss different ways to remove batts from the drum carder, the best ways to store your batts, and finally, provide resources to learn more about all aspects of drum carding.

Students should bring:  Hand Cards (I have a limited number of hand card sets for students without them) and/or drum carder, extra fiber of any type for carding. (There will be lots of fiber available!)

Homework:  If you are bringing fiber from home make sure it is clean.

Material fee: $15 covers class kits of fiber and resource card, plus additional fiber used during class

Class Limit: 12
