2 Fridays, February 2 & 9, 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM
White Bear Center for the Arts

In contrast to most basket techniques, in ply split braiding the elements pass through one another rather the over and under them. This technique offers a variety of color and structure choices that are difficult to achieve with other materials. In the first session, you will learn the basics and begin a basket. You will do some work outside of class to cbd10263_omplete your project, and on the second session we will address any problems or questions.

 Ply-Split Braided Necklace

Monday, October 23
White Bear Center for the Arts

Ply-split 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.
