Upcoming lecture to local weaving guild

I'll be giving a presentation "Sprang: Contemporary Applications of an Ancient Technique", to the Inland Empire Handweavers Guild this coming Monday, May 12. I'll present a lecture with images, giving an overview of sprang, its structure and method of working, its prehistory and history as well as traditional uses, followed by a sampling of works by more recent and contemporary fiber artists working in sprang.

Then it goes into my own work, covering a progression of various ways to incorporate sprang with loom-weaving, and how I set up and work the sprang on my loom.
