In this class we will fold one of Neal Elias’ delightful multi-subject models, featuring a mother bird, three chicks, and a nest - all from a single square of paper with no cuts. This work, which is about fifty years old, is an example of a box-pleated design and features several Elias Stretches – a maneuver which will be demonstrated and taught in this class. Elias left us a partial folding sequence, a few notes, and a sketch of the intended result. There is some room for personal interpretation, a color change, and some “wow” moments.
The Origami World of Neal Elias, produced by Dave Venables and Marcus Cooman. I have generated full diagrams for this model which may be available in future issuances of this work.
