Abstract—This paper presents the design of classical Thai art pattern using GSP for folk wisdom banana stalk carving. The application of computer program is applied in Thai art pattern design using the properties and principles of mathematics and mathematical equations. GSP can help the creation of Thai art pattern design for folk wisdom banana stalk carving with more effective, less time consuming, more convenient, and more accuracy. It requires very high skill to design the pattern manually because it tends to distort easily. The art of banana stalk carving has been a valuable Thai handicraft for generations which needs to be preserved for the country’s pride.
