Carding for Color: Tints and Shades with Henry Clemes

About Carding for Color: Tints and Shades with Henry Clemes

Pick a color, any color! Students begin this class by choosing a color, then blending primaries to create the color with fiber. Next, they blend in additional fiber to create tints and shades. Finally, they work backwards to create a tint or shade from scratch. All carding and blending will be done on our Elite Series Drum Carders with each student using their own electric carder.

Henry Clemes

    Henry has been building fiber art equipment for over 50 years and enjoys sharing his knowledge of both equipment and fiber. The family business he started in 1971 has introduced many innovations to the fiber arts community and their equipment is known for being not only thoughtfully engineered but visually pleasing and durable as well. Henry regularly consults and instructs spinners, felters, fiber growers, and professional fiber artists in the use of drum carders for fiber prep.
