This puppy's most distinctive feature is that it's folded from a tilted grid, a still novel and unexplored field of origami design. Although the sequence is about as easy as it gets for tilted grid models, the face can be very tricky to shape right. After folding the model, we will take a look at some of the properties of the tilted grid method and a crash course of how to use it.


Diagrams can be found in the OrigamiUSA's Origami Collection 2021.


The model is super efficient, so a single square as small as 15cm (6") works, but larger than 20-25cm (8"-10") is better. You also want the paper to be pretty thick (90gsm, like printer paper), since many spots of the model are only one layer thick.

Please have a regular 8x8 grid ready (any paper, any size, valley or mountain crease does not matter, color does not matter) if you would like to follow along with a part of the lecture.
