Introduction to Sprang
- Carol James (X37172)
Explore an ancient technique to make a very elastic fabric. Evidence of this technique has been found everywhere from Norwegian peat bogs to Persia to The Forks. Widely practiced long ago in Europe, Asia and the Americas, this technique was nearly lost to the machine age. Officially classified as braiding, threads are set on a frame and twisted in pairs or groups to form cloth. Two rows of cloth are formed for every one row of work. Learn this exciting new (but really very old) technique to produce belts, caps, shawls and bags using only the simplest of tools.
