About the Course

Colours and Textures on Your Blending Board. Learn to use your blending board to produce fantastic fauxlags and punis. Explore how colour and texture can be used to develop your own vision in spinning and felting.

Please bring your blending board and gloves if you use them. (Gloves help to protect your knuckles!) If you have rods (or chopsticks) and a small brush, please bring those too. Please note, at the time of writing, the Tutor does not have blending boards to borrow. If you would prefer not to carry your blending boards around the show, you are welcome to leave them at my stall for the day. This will be at your own risk.

The Tutor will provide a fibre kit (includes wool, silk and inclusion material) for the workshop and further use at an additional cost of £5.00 payable at the workshop. If you would prefer un-dyed vegan or plant materials please let the Tutor know.
