Rainer says the video is now live on Taprootvideo.com. Watch the preview at https://www.taprootvideo.com/preview_class.jsf?iid=7&cid=3
Check out the PDF handout that accompanies the video. The handout gives you a pretty good idea of the content. For instructions on how to actually do the fingerweaving, how to use the patterns in the handout .... you'll have to watch the video.
Instructions begin at a no-experience-necessary level. Make a friendship bracelet, and twist the fringes to finish. Projects are ordered stepwise, from simple to more complex, and are sufficiently interesting to keep expert weavers occupied. As in the book Fingerweaving Untangled, you get help with tips to check your work, how to identify "irregularities" (aka mistakes), what to do about them, how to avoid them in the future. Make bags, belts, and scarves without a loom!
The announcement is that live-streaming is available starting now. For those with slow internet, or who would just prefer the DVD, well, they are making them as I type this, but the process is rather slow. The hard-copy DVDs will not be available until late January ... I am taking pre-orders.
Carol acknowledges that we are on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people. Carol also acknowledges that sprang is part of many indigenous traditions and found in various forms all over the world. Let us re-discover this technique together.
