Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Louise Oppenheimer-Flax

OK, so it’s not strictly origami since cutting and gluing are required, but how can you possibly pass up these adorable Japanese Paper Dolls? Here’s a chance to use those washi and chiyogami papers that you’ve been saving. Louise will guide you through multiple steps, and provide templates and hints to create your own bookmark, gift decoration or toy.

Rose Auditorium

Date and time

Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Wesley Damgo

Now you can promise a loved one a rose garden! This beautiful model features that quintessential petal silhouette that makes it undeniably a rose. Talo Kawasaki’s 2-piece modular is a variation of Uyen Nguyen’s 6-piece cube and requires a little gridding, some pre-folding and a gradual, satisfying collapse. This model works particularly well when folded from Stardream or Tant paper.

Hearts and Flowers - Cancelled

Date and time
Sunday, Jan. 3, 2016 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Level
Intermediate
Teacher
Carole VerEecke

Romance is in the air! It certainly will be once you’ve mastered this twist-folded rose. Throw in some hearts, including a Heart Napkin ring and you’re all set for that Valentine’s Day dinner. Carole will show you how to create a long stem rose using florist wire and floral tape. Students should be familiar with folding the bird base.

Octagonal Bowl

Put those pads of scrapbook paper to good use, although any piece of fancy paper will make a fine bowl. This ingenious octagonal model is both pretty and practical, can also be used as a vase. Precise folding will be helpful in making this a eye-catching accent to any table. Nuts, anyone?
