Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Louise Flax

Wow them all with these stunning stars! Based on the Stern Saya by Carmen Sprung, these low intermediate modules are variations designed by Doug Caine. The folding is low intermediate and the assembly is a bit tricky. But Louise will gently lead you to success, making six or seven pieces stars. She will also demonstrate how to make your own duo paper to give your stars a wonderful dynamic look.

One-minute Rose

Date and time
Dec. 11, 2011 at 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Wendy Zeichner

How many one-minute roses can you fold in two hours? If you’re Toshikazu Kawasaki, creator of this model, the answer might be 120 roses! If you are not, join Wendy to learn the rose by using the crease pattern template several times and once you understand the twist fold and lock, fold it free-hand using wonderful Tant paper. Fold as many roses as you can!

Carnation and Heart Vase

Dec. 11, 2011 at 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Level

Teacher
Robert Ribaudo

Always a favorite, Russell Sutherland’s famous tissue carnation returns to Special Sessions! The technique is easy and results in an extremely realistic carnation. You’ll be making bouquets of them soon. Best of all, Rob will also teach his original heart vase model entitled “Standing Up for Love.” What a terrific way to declare your love for Valentine’s Day!

Money Folds

Date and time
Dec. 11, 2011 at 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Yee Nar Yuen

Assuming you have extra piles of cash lying around (don’t we all?), what better way of showing off than making moneyfolds! Yee Nar has gathered a trio of her favorites: a lucky frog (you can put a coin, or candy in its mouth), a heart that holds a quarter coin in the center, and a flexagon (similar to the rotating tetrahedra). Run to the bank and get fresh bills!

By the Sea

Date and time
Dec. 11, 2011 at 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Level
Simple
Teacher
Annette Purnell

Take a stroll along the beach with Annette; you never know what you’ll find. Seabirds circle overhead. Sailboats, catamarans and canoes brave the surf. Closer at hand, there are turtles, whales and penguins. These simple models are both traditional and original designs that you probably haven’t seen before. Class size limited to 10.

Afternoon Classes

Jewelry to Go

Date and time
Dec. 11, 2011 at 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Rachel Katz

You’ll need nothing more than paper to create on-the-spot jewelry. No wires or pliers are necessary. The earrings stay on by tension and the stretch bracelet will fit any wrist for a sparkly holiday gift. To finish off, the class will make a gift bag that needs no hole-punch, glue or tape. What an ingenious way to make a fashion statement!

Star Flower Quilt

Date and time
Dec. 11, 2011 at 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM
Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Arlene Gorchov

Arlene has created a connector unit to join Star Flowers to make wonderful quilts. Using duo paper, fold the beautiful Star Flower by Izabella Raiska of Poland. Then using paper the same size or smaller for the connector, assemble them in various patterns to form a quilt. Endless sizes and combinations are possible, limited only by your imagination.

Wetfolding with Wallpaper

Date and time
Dec. 11, 2011 at 2:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Mark Kennedy

There’s wetfolding, then there’s wetfolding with wallpaper. Mark will share his secrets of this technique and show you how it differs from standard wetfolding. You will have a nearly indestructible model once it dries. Many examples of Mark’s wallpaper models annually adorn the Holiday Tree at the American Museum of Natural History.
