I had intended to post this as part of a “I can’t believe it’s April” post, but it’s better that this stand alone for people who might be interested in the class I’m offering on the Cowichan Hand to Hand Fibre Arts Workshops Weekend. I posted a brief teaser on the event website; here are more of the samples I’m preparing for the workshop.
I’ll show you how to use hand cards and/or combs and 5 shades of Ashford Corriedale to begin produce a range of colours, talking about combing and carding technique as we work. I’ll also show you how to use the Andean plying method to quickly produce short lengths of sample 2-ply.
I’ll then talk about a quick and easy way to find a range of colours that work well together, and how to start creating those colours using only the wool we have to hand.
I hope to have some samples to show you how some of these colours work together when I see you at the workshop.
