This 2-3 hour class is intended for folders with little or no experience, who know little about origami. I will present a slide show (with folding intermixed so we don't get too bored!) that covers history, people and organizations, tools & materials, and kinds of origami. I will teach the Cup, the Cicada, the Fortune Teller, and the Masu. If there is time and interest, I will teach other simple-to-intermediate models. Students will need 6" square paper, preferably solid-color on front and white on back, 8-10 sheets; use your own or use what's provided for the class. A creasing tool might be useful if you want to save your fingernails, but not necessary. No cutting or glueing. The models taught will start with simple and progress to intermediate, depending on time and interest. All steps will be shown and some basic moves will be discussed. No prior experience is assumed.
