• Penguin
Teacher(s): Steve Tucker
Creator(s): Steve Tucker
Level: Intermediate

This model was designed during October 2023 and refined during the Pacific Coast Origami Convention in San Francisco. As a fairly new origami designer, the success of this model confirmed I was on the right track. I hope you enjoy!

We will break the folding session up into (2) parts; the first part will involve me teaching you how to fold the penguin's feet while the latter will be the entire model. I think this format will be successful as this section of the penguin has a pretty difficult collapse. While refining this model, this section required the most attention to get the model to stand and balance out the standing posture. Ultimately, a practice fold of this section can help produce a clean final model.

• Three Kings Star
Teacher(s): Philip Chapman-Bell
Creator(s): Philip Chapman-Bell
Level: High Intermediate

This is a model which uses compound creases, that is, creases which have both straight and curved components. A large part of the model is learning to fold curved creases from landmarks without tools, using tangents and the paper's unwillingness to curve in more than one direction at a time.

• Conceptual Origami
Teacher(s): Gerardo Gacharná Ramírez
Level: Not Rated

The complete title of this talk is "Conceptual Origami: The Model's Subject Comes First". Like in the rest of figurative origami, conceptual origami depends on the subject, but in this case it isn't given. The creator had to conceive the subject before designing the model. This origami subtype is not as known, yet has much potential as an art form, since it centers its attention on communicating with the observer.

In this talk, we will delve into its elements and traits, and if there's enough time, we will close with a practical exercise on the topic.

• Yogami
Teacher(s): Lisa Corfman
Level: Not Rated

Yogami is human body folding. Let’s exercise like paper while strengthening our understanding of origami bases. First, we will body fold, then we will paper and napkin fold!

Yogami combines Yoga and Gami. Yoga is a Hindu discipline of mindful body movements for health and relaxation. Gami is part of the word Origami which means folding paper, a Japanese art form. In that word, Ori means fold, and Gami refers to Kami, which is a type of paper to fold. In summary, Yogami exercises are movement illustrating folds flexing one’s bone joints with different body stretches, combining Yoga with the nature of Gami.

• Concave Dodecahedron
Teacher(s): Jeannine Mosely
Creator(s): Jeannine Mosely
Level: Intermediate

Like the regular dodecahedron, this model has 12 pentagonal faces, but the pentagons are concave and the resulting polyhedron is concave. When the double dodecahedron dissection (see the description of my other class, "Triple D") is folded up into a pentagonal dodecahedron, it is solid all the way to its center, but when it is folded up into a rhombic dodecahedron, there is a void in its interior. The figure is the shape of that void.

Plump little hummingbird I designed a few years back. This model is fairly straightforward but does include several squash folds. Diagrams will be provided for participants to take a picture of at the end of class.

• Hydrangea
Teacher(s): James Peake
Creator(s): Takenao Handa/Shuzo Fujimoto
Level: Complex

This "Hydrangea" model is a variation on Shuzo Fujimoto's iconic "Crowding Butterflies" tessellation. This modification and accompanying leaf design were created by Takenao Handa, and diagrams appear in NOA Magazine, Issue 573 (June 2023). One might argue the added dome effect makes the original Crowding Butterflies model look even more like an actual hydrangea, especially with the added leaves.

The collapse is perhaps the most challenging aspect of this tessellation, hence the complex difficulty rating. Otherwise the pre-creasing and subsequent folds post-collapse are relatively straightforward and not too difficult.

Flower is folded from a single square. Leaves are folded from a 1x2 rectangle. Paper for both will be provided in class. Note that the leaves do not actually attach to the flower, but just rest underneath the domed tessellation.

• Jewel Box
Teacher(s): James Peake
Creator(s): Jun Maekawa & Akira Iino
Level: Intermediate

Many may recognize this form as a traditional Japanese box/dish, except this box has 4 flaps that allow it to close at the top. Two versions of this will be taught: a simpler version designed by Jun Maekawa, and a more intricate version designed by Akira Iino. While the two versions look practically identical in their final form, they are actually quite different and have two completely different sets of flaps that close the box.

• Jubilant Star & variations
Teacher(s): Anita Reinehr
Creator(s): Anita Reinehr

• Soul in Origami
Teacher(s): Lisa Corfman
Level: Not Rated

In origami there is math which had energy and can be infinite, and paper which is finite matter. This provides an analogy to grasp the sense of the soul and the world around us. Life’s purpose is complex but sometimes we can find simple understanding from origami. I have more ideas. You can share yours.

• Sunburst Decoration
Teacher(s): Deb Pun
Creator(s): Paul Jackson
Level: High Intermediate

Sunburst Decoration is a gorgeous 1-sheet model designed by Paul Jackson. During class, we will fold from one sheet of ~24cm (~9.5in) plain kami. No cutting! The folded octagon-shaped Sunburst will not fold completely flat. Perfect for origami brooch or holiday decorations when folded from mosaic foil paper!
Be comfortable with squash folds, many repeating folds, opening and collapsing the model. Model requires a high degree of accuracy. Patience is key to completing a clean model.
24cm (9.5in) sheet yields~12cm (~4.75in) finished sunburst;15cm sheet yields 7.5cm.
When you practice this design on your own, find paper that has a corner design such as Corner Harmony paper so the pattern will appear in the front. Center of the sheet will appear on the back of the design.
Paul Jackson has kindly and generously given permission to share diagrams which will be distributed after class.
He has asked for a group photo to be shared with him after class.
