About the Class:
This class will use wool blending to create a beautiful, unique color palette. Students will work with a large selection of colors of wool roving. Students will explore several aspects of color theory and will use the color wheel as a guide to creating a spectacular color palette for use in stranded colorwork knitting or weaving projects.  Students will leave the class with a Color Palette Card and enough fiber to create their own sample project with their color pallets. Ideal for spinners, felters or anyone who works with wool roving!

Class fee includes a selection of wool roving and materials for creating a color card.

IMPORTANT: Students will need to bring their own hand cards or a drum carder. The instructor will be teaching on hand carders.
