FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Â Hudson Valley Workshops Offer Hands-On Drum Carding Instruction
[Kingston, NY, September 4, 2019]Â The father and son duo of Henry and Roy Clemes will teach their first drum carding classes in New England next month. Known throughout the world for the carding equipment they build, the pair from Northern California began instructing fiber artists in the use of drum carders in the early part of this decade. Having sold out workshops at wool and fiber festivals from Tacoma to Dallas to Wisconsin, they set their sights on New York Sheep and Wool Festival. While the concurrent scheduling of vending and teaching at the festival lovingly known as Rhinebeck has precluded the two from teaching in years past, they creatively scheduled classes across the river in Kingston during the week prior to NYS&W, so as not to interfere with the festival or its increasingly popular little brother, Indie Untangled. On Wednesday, October 16, 2019, the two offer their â€œExploring the Drum Carderâ€� workshop designed for fiber artists with little to no drum carding experience. They begin with a history lesson on drum carders, followed by hands-on batt building instruction with both hand crank and motorized carders, creating a total of 4 batts. The following dayâ€™s â€œAdventures in Drum Cardingâ€� is aimed at those who know their way around a carder, as it builds on the techniques taught in â€œExploring,â€� with students creating 5 batts. The instructors supply all the fiber and equipment used in their workshops, with each student using one of the Clemesâ€™s Elite Crankless Drum Carders for the day. The cost for each six-hour workshop is $195 and includes materials and equipment rental. For more information and to register, please visit clemes.com/hvw. Questions can be directed to info@....
