Play with your origami! Candace will teach a variety of fun action models to play with and wow your friends. No experience is necessary. For children 8 and up. Adults without children are also welcome!
Let it shine, let it shine! Paula has assembled an impressive array of starry models that are sure to brighten your day. All are modulars with fairly simple units which lock securely together. Raid your stash and start using those pretty papers to make these flat stars which look great as holiday decorations or on a card.
ack to school and out of pencils already!? Not to fret, John will show you how to make your own origami pencils and pencil case. The case is out of two squares and features a pull-out drawer. Students will make several colored pencils to put into the class. No special folding skills are required. Class limit: 15.
Technically, it’s a 5-unit pentagonal dipyramid using Tom Hull’s Hybrid Unit. Sounds impressive doesn’t it? It looks just as impressive and is different top and bottom. The initial assembly can be tricky but the final lock is easy and secure. What you do with a pentagonal dipyramid is up to you.
Sure to elicit many ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs,’ this is a modern classic dollar fold. This flower in a pot out of a single dollar is rarely taught with the correct landmarks for the creation of the pot resulting in many misshapen planters. Daniel will set the record straight and show you secrets for a perfectly proportioned pot. Please bring crisp dollar bills to class.
You can never have too many stars! So here are two more that Wesley learned at the recent Centerfold Convention in Ohio. The first is the brilliant Corona Solare by Sinayskaya which has a color change and a braided look. The second is Tomoko Fuse’s Hortensia (or hydrangea flower), which is more a spikey ball ornament. Make this out of shiny paper for an exploding star look.
To celebrate this year’s Ocean theme for the Origami Holiday Tree, Joe will be teaching various sea creatures that he has designed. These will include sharks, dolphins and shells. A familiarity with reverse folds, petal folds, pleats and bases is recommended. Take a deep breath and dive right in!
Get Zen with origami zakka, which is anything that improves your home, life and appearance. In this class, it will be these elegant and stylish vase covers/pencil stands by Makoto Yamaguchi. These can be made from 3, 5 or 7 units, depending on how tall you want your model to be. Bring peace and serenity into your surroundings.
Once you start to weave, you won’t be able to stop! How many wreaths would you like to make (how many doors do you have)? These eye-catching and inviting wreaths are made by weaving together traditional Swedish Stars. Sandy will start you off with the 3D stars and then teach you how to weave them together to create a spectacular wreath. All materials will be provided.
