  • Ply-Split Braided Basket

November 12 and 26, 2018
White Bear Center for the Arts

The ply split braiding technique offers a variety of color and structure choices that are difficult to achieve with other materials. In the first session, students will learn the basics of Ply split braiding and begin a basket. In the two weeks between classes students are expected to continue working on their basket. In the second session we will address problems, questions, and finish the basket including finishing options. Experience in ply split braiding is helpful, but not necessary.

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.
