Description: Sprang is a textile technique that goes back to the earliest record of humans making cloth. Garments made using this technique have an amazing stretchy quality, and it was used widely throughout Europe until the 1800's to create garments from hats and socks, to vests, leggings, shawls, and sashes. Please join us for an entertaining evening with sprang expert Carol James to learn more about this versatile technique - its history and it's recent resurgence - and to enjoy images of sprang in museum collections along with historical recreations and modern interpretations.
Carol James learned to embroider and to crochet before she entered kindergarten, so she has been playing with strings for a long time. Introduced to sprang in the mid-1990's, Carol has resurrected this ancient technique and made accessible to everyone through her publications, books, and workshops. She is now known as the Sprang Lady and is a world-recognized sprang instructor.
