Carol James has been exploring low-tech, easily transportable textile methods for 30 years and is of the opinion that anywhere is a good place to weave. She has examined items in collections across North American and Europe, and has made replicas of some of these items for clients such as the Manitoba Museum, Parks Canada, George Washington’s Mount Vernon, and the Norwegian Army Museum. A very patient teacher, she has taught in Canada, the US, New Zealand, and Europe. In June 2015 she was an invited guest speaker/instructor at a sprang conference in Fetsund, Norway. She is the author of numerous articles and three books: Fingerweaving Untangled and Sprang Unsprung and a new book of Sprang Lace Patterns.
