Friday, April 17th – Full Day Class
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 is color play for fiber artists! In this class, students will learn the theory behind how colors mix and use this knowledge to make their own fiber color wheel, as well as card a gradient batt of complementary colors. We consulted with chemist and well-known indie dyer Kimber Baldwin of Fiber Optic Yarns to help us understand the science of color, resulting in this class that 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 each student using their own electric carder. All materials, carders, and tools will be provided by the instructors.
Materials fee: $40 – covers use of a carder, all fiber carded during class, and batt lifter refills for storing carded batts.
Level: Intermediate and beyond
