Description

Today’s Theme: Curved Folding

Usually, origami models are folded along straight lines, but beautiful models are being created by folding along curved lines. Curved-line folding is the act of folding a flat sheet of material along a curved crease pattern in order to create a three-dimensional shape. Often a scoring tool is used to press a curved pathway into the paper so that the fold will more easily be able to follow the desired curve. There are even machines that will score these pathways into the paper by being programmed using mathematical equations. Kate Lukasheva will teach us how to make a model with curved folding.

Supplies

Paper: pentagonal paper, precisely cut (or means to get it quickly), preferably Tant or Elephant Hide.

Tools: burnisher, cutting mat (small size is fine), ruler.
