Henry & Roy Clemes Workshop Spotlight!
Henry & Roy Clemes are here to tell you about their "Exploring the Drum Carder" class for 2018! Henry and Roy were also at BSG at 2017 with this same workshop. Their favorite part of teaching at BSG is "seeing the diversity of the students - they come from all over the west coast and from different backgrounds." With all that diversity, they are very conscious of their student's differing experience levels. What do you need to know before attending? "Nothing!" That's the beauty of Exploring the Drum Carder - we explain the what, how, and why of drum carding, and students also get plenty of hands-on experience. New students will gain an understanding of a process that is seemingly a mystery to most fiber artists. Experienced students who already understand the carding process will gain techniques and tips to make their carding more effective and efficient."
Henry and Roy have decades of experience between them. "Henry began working with fiber/textiles in the 1960's as a high school student, and Roy started in the early 1990's when he was in grade school." In fact, these two have spent so much time working together, that they say they are "almost indistinguishable over the phone, even to our family!" Like the sound of their workshop? We do, too! Join them at BSG 2018.
