Blending Board Primer
With Roy Clemes
Aug 6, 4:00-6:00pm CDT
Hand spinning is joyful and relaxing—when you have properly prepared fiber. Learn how to create rolags that draft as smooth as butter on a Blending Board.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.
In 2011, Henry and Roy Clemes were approached by Gwen Powell to create a new tool that eventually became the wildly popular Blending Board. In this two-hour, demonstration-style class, you will learn basic techniques and the use of a blending board from one of its designers. The class will not only demonstrate the versatility of the blending board in blending fibers of various types, lengths, and colors, but also the strength of the blending board to quickly preparing fiber in rolags for woolen spinning.
Although you will learn a lot from Roy’s demonstration, if you have a Blending Board and fiber, you can work along with him.
Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class:
Basic fiber prep and spinning knowledge is a plus, but not necessary.
