Let’s start with the basics. Or in this case, the base-ics. As the name suggests, origami bases are the start of many models. Annette will introduce you to the Preliminary, Waterbomb, Fish and Bird Bases with a fun variety of models folded from each. Next time a teacher tells you to “begin with a X base,” you’ll know what to do!

Take a seat and get comfy. When Michael (one of our Founders) returned from an Italian convention, he was raving about these delightful models created by his new friend Paolo Bascetta (our guest at Convention a few years ago). Jan will share these with you: a sofa, cushions and table, along with a purse. Go ahead, put your feet up and relax.

Start a new obsession. Not all tessellations are incredibly difficult even if they look that way. Belle will gently introduce you to the awe-inspiring world of tessellations with this impressive pattern by Eric Gjerde. You will end up with a central hexagon with a circle of overlapping hexagons underneath looking like they are stacked on top of each other.

Make almost anything! From a single sheet of paper comes a sequence of 10 models. Using this versatile base, a few additional folds transform each one into the next: fortune teller, salt cellar, windmill, vase, sailboat, pajarita, catamaran, box, picture frame, and Chinese junk. Bob will begin with a new piece of paper each time, so you get to take all 10 home.
