Convention 2016 Suggest Classes

Is there a model you've been dying to learn, but can't find, or haven't been able to fold?

Similar to the "Teach Me:" stickers we've used for years at the Convention, we've created this page to let convention-goers make suggestions for classes by leaving a comment on this page. We can't guarantee anything, of course, but we'll be encouraging everyone interested in teaching to take a look here for inspiration.

If you are interested in teaching, don't comment here, please go to the Teaching Classes page to sign up to teach. If you want to see what people have already committed to teaching, see the preview pages that are linked from the Taking classes page.

Note: you'll need to be logged into your OrigamiUSA website account to make suggestions here or see details of others' suggestions.

Wet folding and the use of methyl Cellulose. The Pentagonal Rose. PLEASE

Perhaps a short tutorial class on common Japanese origami words to help people understand the written directions that go with steps.

This, I think I can do, but not sure when. I taught 30 min. Japanese Introductory class during lunch time a few years ago in the Great Hall of FIT. It was fun and about 35-40 people attended. Although I am not sure if I have time to do this in this convention between my teaching classes and volunteering, I can try sometime in future if there is enough interest.

Perhaps this could be a Monday class that teaches some Japanese folding terms.

Perhaps a Monday class on teaching origami to senior citizens who have never folded before? Models that are simple but nice, i.e. something a little beyond the paper cup.

Maybe I can make a discussion/experience-exchange group on Monday morning. I have been teaching origami to people of all ages including senior citizen classes. There are several factors to consider when you pick models for a certain group. I can provide my ideas and it would be nice to hear other peoples experiences and opinions.

Hi again, Sorry but I came to realize I may not have time to prepare for this class in this convention, but if the person who suggested this class grabbed me during lunch or any off hour, I will be very happy to discuss this topic as I am very interested too. My name is Nobuko Okabe and I will be at the convention from Friday afternoon - Monday early afternoon.

If someone could teach the origami gorilla by nguyen hung cuong.The pre-folds are clear, but the diagram with the photos gets fuzzy and confusing..

Also, maybe Kade Chan would give a tutorial on his Gryphon? I can fold the base, but struggle with the details

Choosing the right paper for folding your model.

this is a MUST

Painting your model/paper without losing its integrity.

Silhoute and robo cutters, sizes, usuage techniques and scoring creases. New diagramming software and existing ones

I am looking forward to speaking with people about what type of paper they are using to fold. I have only used Ben Coleman's technique for coloring paper, which involves several coats, unlike a different mixture involving methyl celouos.
