An Introduction to Ply-Split Braiding
A two-day workshop introducing the principles of this fascinating variation on twining.
On day one we will begin by looking at the different types of cords which can be used, where to source them and how to make your own. We will then work three small samplers to learn the basic stitches and how single-colour, multi-colour and 3-ply cords behave within the structure.
On Day Two, we will make a small vessel to experiment with how this technique may be started and finished in the round.
The first day we will work in cotton cords and on the second in paper. Pre-prepared cords and a grip-fid (the tool used for Ply-Split Braiding) will be supplied .
