Carol James – The Sprang Lady – Low-tech Textile Methods
Handweavers Guild of Boulder
February 2022 Day & Evening Program
Carol James has been exploring low-tech textile methods for 30 years focusing more recently on the technique called sprang. She has examined sprang items in collections across the US and Europe, and is known for her ability to replicate these historic textiles. She has created modern garments deemed worthy of the Handweavers Guild of America fashion show.
Carol has taught in Canada, the US, Europe, and New Zealand. Students describe her as patient, knowledgeable, and passionate. She spent much of her COVID time charting sprang lace designs and writing instruction sheets. She is the author of numerous articles, 4 books, and 2 instructional DVDs.
