Getting to Know Your Blending Board
Blending boards are a fun, accessible way to blend fabulous fibres in your favourite colours and textures to create beautiful rolags, batts, and even roving. We will talk about why and how to use blending boards to create fibre preparations that you will enjoy spinning. These preparations are a beautiful way to use up small amounts of fibre languishing in your stash. There will be different fibres and colours to experiment with and an opportunity to spin samples from your creations.
Bring the following: Working spinning wheel or spindle, basic spinning knowledge.
Optional: Blending board, hand carders, diz, niddy noddy, any prepared fibre remnants that you want to use up.
Susan’s lifelong dream of learning to spin started with a simple drop spindle class. She soon graduated to a wheel (or two), almost 15 years ago. Happily, the Hand spinning Seminar was in her hometown that year and her fibre passion was kindled. A 2020 graduate of the OHS Spinning Certificate Program, Susan loves to experiment with all things fibre. She can often be found dyeing, preparing fibre, and spinning or knitting. It is her happy place.
