Color Theory: Carding the Color Wheel
An in-person class with Henry & Roy Clemes
Mar 4, 9:00am-12:00pm & 2:00pm-5:00pm
Learn the science of color blending and use primary colors to create a color wheel in this hands-on carding workshop!
We all learned in third grade art class that blue & yellow make green, but what if you were to go a step beyond this basic concept and explore the entire rainbow? This class is colorplay for fiber artists! You will learn the theory behind how colors mix and use this knowledge to make your own fiber color wheel, as well as card a gradient batt of complementary colors. This class takes the theory of color blending and applies it to drum carding as never before!
All carding and blending will be done on our Elite Series Drum Carders with everyone using their own electric carder. All materials, carders, and tools will be provided by the instructors.
A $40 kit fee is required and will be collected during class. Kit will include Drum carder and tools, a color wheel, and the fiber used in class.
Previous use of a drum carder is required.
No pre-class work required.
