Louise French Ply-Split Braiding Class

This weekend the weavers offered a class on Ply-split Braiding by Louise French. Ply-split braiding is an interlacement technique found in northwest India, where men make girths, bags and other accessories for camels. In this class they learned the basics of ply-splitting. It was so intriguing that the group has decided to continue gathering to refine their techniques. The first group meets Thursday 5/6/10 at 7:30pm. Looks like we have another artform in the making.
