Folded Strips

Every week at classes I teach different techniques to 
encourage participants to look at different ways
of creating textiles.
Here are a selection of the folded and twisted Strips.
They start off with a 3.5" wide strip as long as
you can handle and then box pleats.
These can be use for add 3D interest on textiles
and make great handles for handbags.
Often it is making the new or having a go at
techniques that inspires other projects that you want 
to do but not had the courage to try.
I am also into keeping brains healthy and
origami is a healthy brain and body activity.
Jennie Rayment is a real inspiration,
I have to translate the techniques so I can do them :)

See this video of her having some fun 
Also you thought pleats could be so much fun
