Description

Sprang Unsprung: An Illustrated Guide to Interlinking, Interlacing and Intertwining explains in a 90-page how-to guide by teacher and weaver Carol James how to manipulate basic finger weaving technique using fixed end warp threads. The title refers to the little known art of free-end interlinking (unsprung), and weaving techniques of interlacing and intertwining (sprang). Clear step-by-step instructions are provided along with colour illustrations and colour photos of each project. The weaver intersperses photographs of Ojibwe, Pueblo and other First Nations objects created using these methods. Projects include a military sash, socks, a purse, a scarf, a hat, and a garment with sleeves. These projects range from simple beginner items to advanced projects. Directions are include to creating your own frame looms, and provides guidance for both right- and left-handed artisans. Recommended.
