Theme: Tessellations/Curved folding
Like tessellations?... but folding a grid intimidates you? Bores you? Then this class is for you! Learn how to create fun and easy curved tessellations without a grid!
The models are ... very much folk models by this time, many origamists created them in some way, Huffman maybe first documented one. I would only take credit for the easy scoring/folding mechanism of them. I will gently guide you to success with this origami form.


-Scoring tool: Burnisher!!! Without a ball or with smallest ball possible. If no burnisher: old out-of-ink gel pen will do. Preferably a pen of 0.4-0.5.
-Paper: either tant if you have it large or plain printer paper. Stardream is OK, but you may want to train on something cheaper. NOT KAMI or thin paper.
-Pieces of cardstock to make templates from: something of a thickness of origami paper pack cardstock sheet is good(the sheet that comes to make a pack stiff). But you need it to cover your sheet entirely. So if you are folding letter paper, it's good to have about that size piece of thick cardstock. Old notebook covers are great. --Plastic of same thickness - even better, as long as you can cut it with scissors.
-A cutting mat or a pack of paper or newspaper you put on your table to save it from scoring tool damage :)
