Sarah Monger: "Blend it! Spin it!"
This workshop is designed to introduce the spinner/knitter to blending fibers on the blending board, provide a place for folks who have one to experiment more, try spinning with a variety of different methods and fibers, and discuss what to do with your hand blended fibers. Participants should know the basics of spinning and drop spindle spinners are welcome.
- This workshop is designed as a very fun and interactive workshop to explore this not so new spinning tool which has achieved new popularity. We will work with a variety of fibers and colors, experiment with different ways to place fibers or pull them to achieve different effects, practice spinning and plying a couple of ways to see various effects. Then, we will discuss various knitting projects for your hand blended fibers and hand spun yarns.
You may bring your own blending board or borrow one for the workshop.
Teacher: Sarah Monger is newly addicted to the blending board and has gone into production to produce and sell beautiful reasonably priced blending boards. She is very excited to share this wonderfully fun tool!
