Winter is coming! So bring a splash of color to the grey days of November by making this multi-hued creation. Start off by learning Gay’s 5-color box using standard colored copy paper, then make a duo-paper version that can have as many as 9 colors. This will surely brighten any dull, dreary, drab day!

The multitude of possible configurations is limited only by your fairy tale imagination. In class, students will build a castle that is slightly less elaborate than shown, but will include two towers, a turret and roofs with flags. Keep adding to your castle when you get home!

FRACTAL FLOWER

Sunday, October 29, 2017 at 2:30pm - 4:30pm
Level:
HIGH INTERMEDIATE
Teacher:
Nathan Ascher

That’s out of one piece of paper?!?!? Roman Diaz’s awesome Fractal Flower is one of the most exciting multi-sink, multi-level fractal models in recent years. It is currently unpublished except in some small distribution newsletters, so now’s the time to learn this jaw-dropper hands-on. It features several difficult gusset moves but depending on the size of paper you start out with and how nimble your fingers are, you can make as many levels as you dare!
