Roy Victor Clemes
I grew up working in our family’s woodshop and am the younger half of the Clemes & Clemes (@clemesandclemes) duo, making innovative, generational fiber art equipment in the San Francisco Bay Area. C&C is known throughout the world for the high quality design and craftsmanship, especially our fiber preparation tools. In pre-COVID times, my father and I travelled coast to coast to vend and teach at fiber festivals around the country. We regularly consult and instruct spinners, felters, fiber growers, and professional fiber artists in the art of fiber preparation. I am teaching two workshops as part of the virtual NY Sheep and Wool Festival this year. I frequently contribute to PLY Magazine and am the president of Lambtown Festival (@lambtownfestival), the largest sheep and wool show in California. I recently began the Maker on Maker interview series which can be found on the Clemes & Clemes Youtube channel. I live with my wife in the SF Bay Area with our terribly cute toddler and two very spoiled sheep.
