This class is an introduction to box-pleat crease patterns and shaping using my Origami Swordsman to demonstrate. We will be shaping with glue/mc and getting the most out of regular paper for more complex models. In this class I will be instructing from beginning to end my swordsman design using printer paper. This includes precreasing, collapsing, and shaping. By taking this class, you will go home with a model and the understanding of a variety of techniques. Students should be familiar with folding intermediate level origami from diagrams on their own. We will be using printer paper which can be tough on the fingers, so bone folders could aid in creasing.
