Vibrant: Blending and Spinning for Color Effects
Modern spinners have a bounty of dyed locks, rovings, and combed tops at our fingertips. While much of what we buy is ready to spin, we can also dive in and make our own blends and
adapted preparations. In this workshop, we will prepare and sample a variety of yarns―tweed, marled, ombre, and more―while exploring color interactions and basic color
theory. Learn to create several different preparations and blends using your handcards, and you’ll also have a chance to try your hand at color blending on a hackle.
Skills needed: Ability to spin and ply a basic yarn.
Students to bring: Several spindles or a spinning wheel in good working condition, such as niddy noddy and a lazy kate. You will need handcards for this class. Some handcards
will be available to borrow.
