Tiana will demonstrate the historic textile craft of sprang – an ancient method of constructing fabricthat has a natural elasticity. The technique involves twisting the threads of a fixed warp in a method similar to braiding, creating a fabric which resembles knit lace. Visitors will be able to give it a try!
Admission to Sprang with Tiana St. James includes all programs and activities, plus an added bonus: the 31st Annual Quilt Exhibition. (Guests of the Woodstock Inn & Resort receive free admission.)
