Shuzo Fujimoto developed both the hydrangea and the clover tessellation. I will be teaching an arrangement of clover tiles in the shape of a three-layered hydrangea.
This is a clover, so we won’t be doing an actual collapse. We are working on the white side to start and we put in the central square as a mountain fold and then put in some triangles (see 3rd photo). It would probably be helpful if folders have a passing familiarity with Clovers or Hydrangeas, but this is easier than Fujimoto's hydrangea.
A single sheet model, 15CM (6 inches) is a good size.
Students MUST prepare 1 sheet pre-creased grid:
• 16x16 grid square MOUNTAIN folds on the color side
• 32x32 diagonal VALLEY folds on the color side
Suggesting Harmony paper, but regular Kami or Kraft paper gives good results.
Tant and Astrobright work well, but paper with different color sides is recommended for the first time.
A bone folder and a bamboo skewer or other pointy tools are a good idea.
