De-mystify the drum carders as you learn hands-on about semi-worsted and woolen batts. Learn different techniques to create an art batt, how to prepare batts for spinning sock yarn, and how to add silk or bamboo into woolen batts.Practice removing fiber from the teeth, both as rolags and as pencil-sized sliver drawn through a diz. An ambitious goal of 5 batts produced during class means that after class you will have ample carded fiber for spinning samples and small projects.

All carding and blending will be done on Clemes & Clemes 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

Great class! Learned a lot about what to do with drum carders.

fabulous class

I had so much fun playing with fiber in class and learning so much. I just spun the first bump of carded fiber and it was smooth and easy to spin.
