An introduction to ply-Split Braiding – Julie Hedges
Using prepared 4-ply cotton cords, you will learn some of the basic methods of ply-split braiding that have been used traditionally to make camel girths and animal harnesses. Through making samples of several different designs you can see how these techniques can be developed into usable items by reference to Julie’s collection of samples and finished pieces. There will be a discussion on the choice of yarn for ply- splitting and a demonstration of the all-important cord making process.
Cost £45 – Gripfid is available on loan or to purchase for £12.
