Vibrant: Blending and Spinning Color

Kate Larson

Saturday All Day

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, ombré, and more―while exploring specific 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.

Skill Level: Ability to spin and ply a basic yarn.

Material fee: $15
