Linda takes you into her Portland, Oregon studio for a lesson in ply-split basketry. She shows two traditional goat-hair camel girths, and then leads you step-by step through the process of making her ply-split garlic basket; written instructions are included for the garlic basket in three sizes. You will learn how to use a gripfid with a commercially-made 3-ply paper cord called Danish cord and how to create the ply-split structures SCOT (single-course oblique twining) and POT (plain oblique twining). When you finish, you will have a lovely basket for your garlic, or whatever else you might want to put inside!
