California, Spring 2017

Here I am in California again. I spent two days at Lacis Museum of Lace in Berkeley, teaching and spreading the good word about sprang.Lacis.Feb2017

Next weekend off to visit with the handweavers of Santa Cruz. During the interim, I’ve been working on writing out patterns for some of the Coptic bonnets I’ve seen. I’ll run my pattern-writing past sprang students, see if they can make out the meaning, repeat the designs using my patterns.
