Paper Weaving




I recently took at class from Jennifer Moore who is a well-known weaver, she weaves beautiful pick-up doubleweave.  See her work here.  The class I took was titled 'Math-magical', we studied lots of geometry, symmetry, angles, the golden proportion and more - I'm still trying to figure out how to apply
what I learned to my weaving.  What I did get from the class is a  new way of looking at the world.

The last day Jennifer showed us these paper weaves she had made.  They are amazing.  I would love to know how she did this.  Maybe someday she will teach a class in paper weaving.

WOW! Where did you take a class? Somewhere nearby?? I'd love to take a class, and I'd also love to learn the paper weaving.

I should petition her for a class on paper weaving! I'll keep you posted.

Sign me up! My daughter looked at your gold and black prairie grass weaving at VIVA and said. "look she wove this using Fibonacci". I thought it was cool she noticed that right away.
