Origami Tessellation Basics: Open-Back Hexagon Twist

I highly recommend the book "Origami Tessellations" by Eric Gjerde if you are interested in tessellations: http://www.happyfold...

This video demonstrates how to fold an open-back hexagon twist. It is a technique that is often used in origami tessellations.

The open-back hexagon twist works on a triangle grid. The video also explains the difference between a twist that rotates clockwise or counterclockwise. If you fill the whole paper with open-back hexagon twists, combined with triangle twists, then you will receive the tessellation "Open-Back Hexagon Twist" designed by Eric Gjerde or "Basket Weave" designed by Joel Cooper.
