Color Tricks in Spinning with Janel Laidman
Learn to control the color changes in your spinning to get just the effect you want—stripes, no stripes, short stripes, long stripes! We'll make a gradient yarn, a fractal stripe, and lots more tricks. We'll also learn how to card fibers to produce particular color effects. Learn to tone down a fiber that's too bright, which colors to blend to get that perfect green, or how to make your colors pop.
Note: Students should be familiar with their wheel and be able to spin a continuous thread. Can be done on a spindle but students may not spin enough to see the effects.
Materials fee: $18 for fibers
This event is also available as part of a combo package which includes this class, 15 hours of classes, Opening Day and Luncheon, Fashion Show and Dinner, and the Student Banquet.
