Theme: Connected Cranes
Connected crane folding is an old origami tradition. Although it involves cutting, the results are extraordinary. If you have not tried this type of origami, you will be pleased with the process and results.

We will fold a model of eight connected cranes using the Renzuru origami technique. These cranes are arranged in a circle shape and are all folded from a single sheet of paper. We will first prepare the paper by transferring the cutting diagram and then learn how to make the strategic cuts before the folding process.
Although the paper crane folding instructions are widely known, we will learn the particularities of folding this traditional design using this special Renzuru technique.
