Class Description:

Making two-color Kongō Gumi braids is a lot of fun as there are over one thousand different patterns to choose from. But what happens to a particular pattern when you switch from a Z-spiral to an S-spiral direction? Will the pattern stay the same?

If you are interlacing a solid striped braid, the answer is YES. The stripes will switch from a Z- to an S-spiral direction. But if you are interlacing a braid with a specific pattern, changing directions will more than likely change the design. However, through trial and error, I was able to find a series of 2-color braids that maintain the same pattern whether interlaced in the Z- or the S-spiral direction.

Learn how to switch from a Z-spiral to S-spiral braid, and practice some of the variations that yield the same patterned braid in both directions.

Prerequisite: none

All needed materials will be listed in complete detail when registration closes. Students will provide their own materials to create these braids.
