Intermediate
Presenter:
Marc Kirchenbaum

The buzz about the next Origami Connect is true – there will be bees! An intermediate level model will be taught, along with a simpler take on the subject. Time permitting, a flower might be thrown in for good measure. All models will be taught by Marc Kirschenbaum, the origami wiz who designed these cute pieces. Typical of origami experts, Marc has authored many books, has been showcased in multiple exhibitions, and has even had a few private shows in his hometown in NYC. The fun in origami is in the folding - Marc likes to set his work apart by having interesting and engaging sequences. These bees are no exception, and have the added feature of being flat for use as a card decoration.
