Origami for Beginners
The art of Japanese paper-folding.
You may have seen the now-famous origami cranes that some of us learned to fold in school. They are just the tip of the iceberg! Using no more than a piece of paper and some basic fold patterns, you can create everything from animals to ornaments. More complex structures are often deceptively simple: just a series of similarly folded single sheets of paper, cleverly joined to make flowers, orbs, or whimsical unnamed forms.
This course will begin with the simplest folds, and take you through a sequence of steps to more complex combinations. Each class will focus on a few simple models, with plenty of time to master them. There will be plenty of resources to assist you: demonstrations, written and diagrammed instructions, links to YouTube videos, and one-on-one instruction.
No prior knowledge is required: the course is for absolute beginners. Origami draws on many skills (such as simple geometry, spatial relations) but requires none of them. Bring your patience and a sense of humour!
