Presenter:
Jason Ku

Join us for our first 2 Session Event! When you sign up for this you will be able to join us for both days.

Session 1: Saturday, September 22, 2018; 12:00-2:00 pm Eastern
Session 2: Sunday, September 23, 2018; 12:00 pm-4:00 pm Eastern

In Session 1, Jason will talk about growing up with origami, his evolving growth in origami design, creating OrigaMIT, and more. During Session 2, Jason will teach his amazing convention ‘hit’ model, Ryu Zin 2.1.
Inspired by Satoshi Kamiya's ultra-complex model, this model is a substantially simplified version of a baby eastern dragon, considerably shorter and less detailed. Students should have experience folding box-pleated models from crease patterns; we will test this prerequisite at the beginning of the class.
If you can’t attend both or all the session, you will receive the recording link after the event.

Materials:
Very large sheet of paper.

Evan Zodl

Join Evan Zodl and learn his original model, Stella. Evan is an origami artist, surf photographer, and software engineer. He has been folding paper for over 13 years, and in an effort to share my passion with the world, he began making instructional origami videos on YouTube in 2008. Since that time, he has taught origami to millions of people around the globe through his videos. In 2009, he began designing his own unique models inspired by fractals, spirals, and recursive patterns found in nature. We are excited to have Evan be a presenter on Origami Connect this fall!

Jan Polish

Lillian Oppenheimer was famous for teaching beginners and encouraging them to continue in origami. She developed her First Lesson using models that were easy to teach and easy to fold, and which increased origami skill-building and self-esteem. In this class, Jan will teach you the simple models Lillian loved and show you the best ways to teach them to others.
