Ply-Split Braiding Workshops, Classes and
Sign up of classes taught by Louise
braiding is an interlacement technique found in northwest India, where men make
girths, bags, and other accessories for camels. We use this technique to make
decorative pieces such as necklaces, bracelets, belts and vessels. In this class
you will learn the basics of ply-splitting by making a key ring fob, and then
move on to a necklace.
Ply Split Braiding adds a new and portable textile art to your weaving, spinning or dyeing world. This technique uses yarns you probably have in your stash and can create fascinating embellishments and additions to your textile wardrobe.
Learn by making a multicolored band to be used as a key fob or luggage tag. This technique can then be reapplied and enhanced to make necklaces, purse straps, baskets and even more.
