Today’s Theme: Innovation

How are new forms of paper folding developed? We have been introduced to quite a few different types of origami, from some of the most traditional (like representational), to new innovations (like tessellations), and there will be more types to come before World Origami Days are over! A somewhat different take on creating a new approach is to combine various forms. Beth Johnson has managed to accomplish that feat by taking several forms of origami and melding them together to create some new and exciting models.

This model uses a spiral pattern inspired by the work of Tomoko Fuse. In this class, you will learn how to fold the model, and you will also learn the technique for folding origami spirals.


10"/25 cm paper (kami or biotope or similarly thin paper). A straight edge, scoring tool, and pencil could be helpful but are not necessary.
