Description

This is the companion class to Exploring the Drum Carder. In this class, we continue to de-mystify the drum carder. Batts will be prepared both semi-worsted and woolen. Students will learn different techniques to create an art batt, prepare batts for spinning sock yarn, and learn to add silk or bamboo into woolen batts. Students will also learn to remove fiber as rolags and as pencil-sized sliver through a diz. An ambitious goal of 5 batts produced during class means students will have ample carded fiber for spinning samples and small projects after class. All carding and blending will be done on our Elite Series Drum Carders with each student using their own electric carder. All materials, carders, and tools will be provided by the instructors.

Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class
Working knowledge and some experience with a drum carder is preferred.

A $50 kit fee will be collected by your instructor during class. Correct change is appreciated.
The kit includes all fiber used in class and use of all equipment.

Supply List
Optional:
• Drum carder or fiber from home if students would like advice, but all work will be done on the equipment and with the fiber that the instructors provide.
