Multiple Effects From a Hand Painted Roving
Date & Time
Wednesday, April 10, 2024, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Using basic spinning skills, students will explore some of the effects possible from one handpainted roving. A color-theory and fiber-content discussion will help students evaluate handpainted rovings and their potential for various techniques. With different predraft preparation and different drafts, students will create multicolored single and two-ply yarns, and also a number of different yarns, including various two-ply combinations, Navajo plied self-striping yarn, fractal spinning techniques, and completely different colored yarns from the same roving. Each student receives a handpainted roving included in the class fee.
