Complex
Teacher
Michael Assis

A popular class at the Convention, Mike will reprise his original Girl model. A complex model with closed sinks, none of which are too difficult, the real fun comes at the end. Sculpting of the model will be encouraged so that each person ends up with a personal interpretation of their girl.

These are just too sweet! Louise will teach you these adorable three-dimensional chicks designed by Roman Diaz of Uruguay. One has a triangular base and the other has a square base. Make a few and line them up for a cute, cheery, clutch of chicks.

Purim Models

Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Annie Pidel

Even though Purim is not until February, you can start getting ready with some of Annie’s original models, including hamentashen cookies, a scroll and a crown. There will be a bit of everything: wetfolding, dryfolding, curling, crumpling, circles, rectangles, modulars, and perhaps even something with a square!

Three Bird Models

Date and time
Nov. 13, 2010 at 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Level
Low Intermediate
Teacher
Toshiko Kobayashi

Three birds with different heritages! See how the Brazilian Beja Flou is similar to the Japanese Crane and the Korean Crane. All three are folded from the Bird Base but diverge from there due to their different cultural backgrounds. Here’s your chance to really master the Bird Base.

Thanksgiving

Nov. 13, 2010 at 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Level
Low Intermediate
Teacher
Laura Kruskal

Spruce up your Thanksgiving dinner table with Laura’s original Turkey, Napkin Fold, Place Card, Snack Dish, Serving Tray, and Gift Box. Wow, that’s a lot … wonder if there’s room left on the table for the fixings!

Afternoon Classes

Turkey

Date and time
Nov. 13, 2010 at 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Level
Complex
Teacher
John Szinger

Let’s talk turkey. Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Join John as he teaches his original model that features a detailed head complete with wattle, a nice round body, a fan tail and realistic four-toed feet (to make it stand up well), and some color change effects. Too bad the turkey lost out to the bald eagle as the national bird.

Snowflake

Date and time
Nov. 13, 2010 at 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Jean Rishel

Get into the spirit of winter with this splendid Snowflake created by Dennis Walker. Jean will show you how to cut hexagons from a rectangle and teach you this lovely design with layers of ice crystals. This makes a wonderful decoration to include in cards or to hang in a window to celebrate the winter. As time permits, you can try one out of foil or vellum.

Bouquet

Date and time
Nov. 13, 2010 at 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Sumako Umezawa

Spend the afternoon with Sumako creating this stunning orchid bouquet or corsage. Using washi and crepe paper, you will construct a grouping of lovely flowers. Although some of the models are designed to have cuts, they can be folded without cutting if you wish. This arrangement makes a wonderful gift!

Money Folds

Date and time
Nov. 13, 2010 at 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Level
Simple
Teacher
Bernice Smith

Ever want to leave the waiter or waitress something a little special? Bernice will teach you a variety of moneyfolds that are easy to whip up. These include a beating heart, a jumping frog, an owl, more hearts, Michael Shall’s sailboat, the shirt and pantsuit, and even more as time permits.

Bob Voelker & John Blackman

Bob and John will teach you the art of Scoubidou (plaiting and knotting).

Bob and John will teach you the basic knots and get you started. There should be time to finish one fob and advanced knots will be taught as time permits. Class limit: 15
