Workshop Description: What is an art batt? How might you make one? What can you do with it, and why would you want to? How do dog combs come into the fiber-prep picture? And what in the world is a rolag? Learn answers to those questions–and more! Students will leave with the basic skills needed to create art batts, knowledge of some handy creative-carding tools, and fibery clouds of various kinds designed using ingredients from the unique Foldout Cat Batt Buffet and created using hand cards, blending boards, and drum carders. We’re batty for batts–and we think you will be as well!
