An Illustrated Guide to Interlinking, Interlacing and Intertwining.
Thank goodness for Carol James! Finally, a step-by-step, manual that is well illustrated helps untangle the technique of the little-known art of sprang. Close on the heels of her previous publication, Fingerweaving Untangled, Carol James has produced yet another book that is certain to become an essential reference for all who love textiles.

Carol James has practiced many forms of creative finger weaving for over 20 years as an art form in itself, as well as a relaxing and even healing experience. This passionate artist and dedicated teacher has touched people from all walks of life with her work. In this companion volume to Fingerweaving Untangled, James introduces us to the ancient art of free-end interlinking (“unsprung”) and the classic sprang techniques of weaving including interlacing and intertwining. Beginners and practitioners at all levels will find James’ richly-illustrated user-friendly style of presentation a welcome addition to the literature on the textile arts.
