About this title


A groundbreaking study first published more than twenty years ago and long unavailable, this is the definitive work on the fabric-making process known as sprang. For at least 3,500 years, this finger-controlled technique has been used where a stretch fabric was required, but its revival today is based mainly on its many decorative and structural possibilities. In addition to chapters on the definition, history, and terminology of sprang and equipment and setup, the book covers the immense range of sprang techniques, illustrated with 160 diagrams and photographs of samples. A practical book for those who want to learn and explore the technique, it is also valuable for textile students and researchers. (71/2 X 91/2, 324 pages, b&w photos, diagrams)

About the Author:

Peter Collingwood abandoned medicine to become a full-time weaver more than forty years ago, concentrating on original techniques for rugs and wall hangings. He lives in England and makes annual teaching trips to the United States. He is the author of many books and articles on textile subjects.
