Coming Up Next

Date and Time:
Sunday, February 18, 2018, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm EST
Low Intermediate
Char Morrow

Char will teach this beautiful model designed by Robert Neale. She is so excited that she was able to bring this model out of hiding a couple of years ago. Robert shared many other interesting models and ideas in collaboration with Mike Naughton. (Note that this document can be purchased for download on the OrigamiUSA website.) The crystal is elegantly simple, though, as with so many modulars, it has a couple of fun and clever steps. Time permitting, some variations will be shared.

In addition to teaching the Crystal, Char will talk about her work in origami and mathematics and about her work in math-art. She will tailor her remarks to the interests of the audience, so get your questions ready. You can even send questions ahead of time to origamiconnect [at]

Materials needed: The crystal can be made with 4, 5, 6, or 7 pieces of paper. Char recommends that you start with 6 pieces of kami, 2 different colors (e.g, 3 of one color and 3 of another color). Alternating colors makes it easier to see the structure. Plain rather than patterned paper is highly recommended for learning. You may want to have some patterned paper on hand to fold a second model. Duo paper is not a good choice, as the back side of the paper does not show.
