SPRANG Class at FTT a BIG SUCCESS!

written by: posted in: Uncategorized

sprang1Carol James from Old’s College in Canada came down to teach the art of SPRANG-an ancient type of finger weaving. Besides being a great teacher, she impressed us with her knowledge of textile history and how SPRANG was used extensively until the Industrial Revolution.

sprang3She even modeled a pair of her woven sprang pants that would have been worn as far back as the Dark Ages. By close study of old paintings, she created her own pattern in order to create them!

Sprang 9Many of our THSG members attended the class and agreed it was very enjoyable.
