April 29, Saturday – 1 Day Class
Sprang is an ancient textile structure that has many forms. It can look like simple plaiting, or have lacy diamond shaped holes called “interlinking”. This is an introduction to this open version of sprang done on a frame. After discussion of the basic structure and demonstration of how it is accomplished, students will dress the frame, then “weave” it off. Manipulation is simple and the task moves quickly as a single pass adds a row to both the top and bottom as the fabric is worked to the center. Discussion of finishing the fabric and demonstration of turning it into a bag follows.
Materials fee $5
Experience required: Students should have some experience in either knitting, crochet, weaving or spinning.
