Exploring the Drum Carder - SOLD OUT

Drum carders are a mystery to the average fiber artist: fiber is fed into the carder, ends up on the big drum, and something magical happens in between.

In our ‘Exploring the Drum Carder’ class, students begin the day by learning the history of drum carders, how they work, and why they function the way they do. The fun goes hands-on for the rest of the day as we delve into the differences of woolen and worsted carding, explore the many tools that make drum carding more efficient, and crank out four different batts. The first batt will be hand cranked before switching over to Electric Drive for the duration of class. All materials, carders, and tools will be provided by the instructors.

Prerequisite:  None

Skill Level Required:  Beginner.  No previous drum carding necessary.
