I'll demonstrate a general method of rearranging pleat intersections and show how to use patterns designed for weaving cloth to create new folded tessellations. We'll go over a few examples and then the students will choose a pattern to fold from a set of examples. If a projector is available, I will also show how to experiment with these designs using a computer.
- Please pre-crease a tessellation grid: (Optional: precrease a couple of square grids. One at least 16x16 for the final piece. A few 8x8 for practice examples.
Unpublished; I've posted photographs of various examples of the method on instagram.
At least a 12-inch sheet of paper for the finished piece. Smaller sheets for working the introductory examples. Most any type of paper should work.
