Upcoming Workshop: Layering Sprang on Woven Cloth

In about three weeks I'll be leading a workshop in making these sprang designs on a twill cloth.  We'll be using a supplementary warp technique to float some warps over the fabric, then plaiting the warps.  The stretchy fabric that results forms an interesting curved shape.

Participants can make a sampler, trying out different size, shape and placement of the motifs as well as various weave structures and even different yarns, or they can choose to repeat a pattern and create a scarf like this one.

To register for the workshop, you can visit this page at the Southern California Handweavers' Guild site.
