Originating Calendar Spurlock Museum - Event

In looping, the entire length of the working thread is drawn through the edge of the fabric on every stitch. For thousands of years, when a thread ran out people just twisted on more. But in this class, you'll use already-spun hemp or nettle fiber and learn different ways to add on when a thread runs out. The class project is a small wearable pouch inspired by an Akha carrying bag from the Museum's collection.

Reservations are required. Contact Kim Sheahan at 244-3355 or ksheahan@illinois.edu.
