This class serves as an introduction to Sonobe unit modular models - no prior modular experience is needed!

We will learn:
* How to fold the base Sonobe unit (with an optional single fold variation for a color change)
* How to assemble a 6 unit model (cube)
* How to assemble a 12 unit model (stellated octahedron). You are welcome to take apart your cube and only fold 6 additional units.
* I will also demonstrate how to assemble a 30 unit model (stellated icosahedron), but I don't expect everyone to finish folding 30 units.

I'll also be happy to answer any questions about modular origami.


I recommend using kami, no larger than 6 inch/15cm.

For the 6 unit cube, you will need 6 sheets of paper - 3 colors, two sheets of each color.

For the 12 unit model, you will need 12 sheets of paper - 3 colors, four sheets of each color.

For the 30 unit model, you will need 30 sheets of paper - 6 colors, five sheets of each color.
