This is a moderately complex design that requires precise folding but will reward you with several fun maneuvers, such as spread-squashes, and fairly tricky "unwrap" used to generate the color-changed mane. It incorporates influences from several artists, hinted at by the name.

Richard Alexander will provide a historical overview of hand papermaking at Origamido Studio. It started with Michael’s sessions with Elaine and Donna Koretsky at Carriage House Paper (first at the Brickbottom maker space in Somerville, MA) and then in Brookline, MA.

He will discuss the experiences of working with Satoshi Kamiya, Robert Lang, Alex Soukas, and Tim Povall.

This is a flower made from octagon tatoh. I named it because of its starburst shape but you can enjoy shaping the petals in different ways too.

## Denguri (Rotating Ring)

Level

Creator(s)
Kunihiko Kasahara
Teacher(s)
Nobuko Okabe

This is a rotating ring made with two sheets or one sheet. "Denguri" is a traditional Japanese paper toy that can be moved around to make different shapes. The word means turn/rotate/somersault and Kasahara used the name for his model because it rotates. It can be made with two square sheets or one square. We will make a two-sheet ring in the class and I will show you one-sheet model and rings with other sized as long as time allows.

## Lessons from the Heart

Michael LaFosse

Improve your folding skills by making this charming origami heart a daily exercise! You will learn about paper's grain--the direction in which most of the fibers are aligned--and how best to control the paper when folding against the grain, when most folding disasters happen. Michael designed this origami heart envelope/note as a skill-building folding exercise for his students. Once mastered, these hearts are quick and satisfying to fold. It is a terrific model to add to your gift-giving repertoire.

## Art-Deco Wing

Michael designed this in 1975 while studying in Florida. His eighth floor dorm room was conducive to paper airplane designing. Launched gently at slow speed, it exhibits an impressive, long glide slope. This stackable glider can be tossed high into the air to perform a fireworks of confusing loops!
We will fold other flying models as time permits.

Add some avian grace to your repertoire of origami containers with this beautiful Swan Bowl. Regular origami “kami” paper is great for learning this model but using slightly thicker paper lets you wet fold it more elegantly. It’s a bowl that will fill you with peace, love and happiness.

A realistic Armadillo uses my hex base and features a detailed shell, claws, head and ears. Fun fact: a group of Armadillos is called a fez.

## Pegasus

Level
Complex
Creator(s)
John Montroll
Teacher(s)
Jon Herrity

This is one of the most elegant pegasus designs you can fold with a sheet of paper. John Montroll's pegasus design provides a really nice blend of complexity including a 'double unwrap fold', two sink folds (open and closed sinks), and a few brilliantly pleasing unlocking sequences. There is a really nice balance of petal folds and reverse folds scattered throughout this model. It's not for the faint of heart, however, and it can easily take 2 hours to fold.

## Essence

Level
Intermediate
Creator(s)
Brian Beitel
Teacher(s)
Brian Beitel

In this class, I will show you how to fold this really pretty modular ring.
The units are not very hard as they are similar to a bird base (so it does involve basic reverse folds). The assembly may be a bit challenging for beginners, but I believe everyone will be able to figure it out.
Depending on how fast you are at folding, you may not finish by the end of class, but I am more than happy to stay until everyone is finished. :)

## Columbus Cubes

These cubes never fail to amaze. Like Columbus' egg, the cube is made to stand on a corner. We will make two cubes to stack.

## Hyperbolic Parabola

Teacher(s)

This is a self-folding model! Once the pre-creases are made, it naturally makes this shape. We will fold this model twice from kami paper and show you how put them back to back to create beautiful color combinations.
