An in-person class with Henry & Roy Clemes

Mar 5, 9:00am-12:00pm

Learn how to blend colors and fibers on a blending board — from one of its designers!

In stock


In 2011, Gwen Powell approached Henry and Roy Clemes to create a new tool that eventually became the wildly popular Blending Board. No you can learn basic techniques and use of a blending board from one of its designers. The class will not only demonstrate the versatility of the blending board — blending fibers of various types, lengths, and colors — but also the strength of the blending board – quickly preparing fiber in rolags for woolen spinning. All carding and blending will be done on Clemes & Clemes Blending Boards with everyone using their own boards. All materials, boards, and tools will be provided by the instructor.

A $25 kit is required and fee will be collected by the instructor. Kit includes use of blending board with tools and all fiber used in class.

Lives up to the name!

This was a great primer on blending boards! I’ve had one for years but wasn’t comfortable using it and now I feel ready to make piles and piles of rolags. Perfect amount of time, level of info, and great set up. Thank you!

Great Introduction Class

I really enjoyed the class. New to spinning and all the tools that can go along with the craft, I really loved getting an introduction into how to use a blending board. I have built my own board and I am happy to say I have been much more successful after taking this class in making wonderful rolags. I am so happy I took this class and learned how to use the board correctly. An in person class would have likely been much more fun, but I still highly recommend this class.
