Visiting at the RedFish Yarn display earlier this year, they told me that they welcome finished pieces. So .... wanting more people to touch sprang, and because I do like the color and feel of RedFish yarn, I've set to work, and have created two pieces.
The yellow piece reflects a lace pattern that I wrote out, after examining sprang pieces in the British Museum collection, specifically EA21632.
The multi-colored piece is a circular warp neckscarf with a twined design, and I suppose you're wondering how I did it. Here are a series of photos that might help you to understand.
If you want to know how to create those yellow twining lines, have a look at my YouTube videos
If you want to see the finished pieces, I'll deliver them to RedFish in time for the HGA Convergence Vendor's Hall in Reno, Nevada, this July.
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.
