Demonstration: Making Art Batts with Martha Foster
April 23 @ 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Art batts made on a blending board or drum carder are a great form of fiber for spinning or felting. Batts fluff and separate fibers, while giving the batt maker the opportunity to blend colors and materials to create a one-of-a-kind yarn or felted project. We will be demonstrating the lap-held blending board.
Martha is a life-long fiber artist who learned to knit and crochet from her dad, who grew up with two sisters. She became an accomplished knitter and a yarn devotee by her teen years. Then, for several decades, fiber arts were on a back burner. But after career and family time demands slowed, she enthusiastically returned to fiber arts. Currently, crafting partner Rosemary Hart and Martha sell their fiber arts products and materials at the Spinners and Weavers Guild Store in College Mall in Bloomington, Indiana, and on the website HoneybunchWS.com.
