1 Day Class
Ready to have drum carding de-mystified? This is the class that will do it. Batts will be prepared both semi-worsted and woolen. Students will learn different techniques to add fiber to 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 7 or more 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.
Materials fee: $45 covers use of a carder, all fiber carded during class, and batt lifter refills for storing carded batts.
Level: Some drum carding experience is a good idea but if you are a quick learner, come on in!
