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.
