Blending Board and Yarn Design with Roslyn Darling
The blending board is a versatile tool for exploring special colour and texture effects. Participants will learn different fibre preparation techniques using wool, silk, alpaca, mohair and sparkles. Paint with fibre to create multiple nearly identical striped rolags, crazy batts for textured art yarns, and unique rovings. Spin your rolags and rovings to create special and surprising yarns. Drawing a roving from hand combs using a diz will also be taught.
Experience with either spindle or wheel required.
