Rug Challenge 2020

The rug challenge for 2020 is….

3-D Braids!

This is your opportunity to create something fantastical with your braids.  Create a sculpture of a seashell… a flower… a geometric creation.  Wrap a shape in braids, glue braids onto a shape, or stiffen braids with wire running through them.  Use a wire frame for a wreath and cover it with braids…  Make a purse or tote!

Here are some 3-D braid examples:
