Working with a Mini Blending Board with Karen Dietrich (Saturday, June 3)
WORKSHOP REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
Using a blending board is a great way to create your own fiber and colorways for felting, spinning, or even weaving. In this workshop, you will learn how to attach fiber to the board, blend, and roll off your fiber. You will be shown tricks of the trade to ensure a rolag that you can use for many different types of fiber projects. During the workshop, students will start to plan their own felted scarf with the use of the blending board. The instructor will bring samples of the many different ways you can use your new fiber. You will create your own rolags with the materials provided and will be able to keep the board and tools.

Included Material Fee
A $35.00 material fee is included in the workshop registration fee. The fee includes fiber and your own mini blending board kit (blending board, pick, brush, cover, written instructions, and a tote).
