Ply-Split Braided Necklace
August 14, 9:30 AM-3:30 PM
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.
Bands with a Purpose
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.
