Modern Origami is accessible to everyone. I will show how traditional origami has evolved from the well-loved crane to today's form by leading two hands-on origami classes to fold, manipulate and assemble paper into usable containers and or decorative spheres. During the morning session, participants will learn how to interpret diagrams illustrated by modern origami designers by folding several practical boxes and containers. In the afternoon, each participant will weave together 30 sheets of paper into a dodecahedron ball, a subset in modern origami know as modular origami.

Saturday morning session (2 hours) "Practical Origami Containers" I will teach participants how to interpret diagrams illustrated by modern origami designers from folding several practical boxes and containers. I will discuss where to find online resources for origami diagrams, videos, book reviews and paper.

CANCELLED! Saturday afternoon session (2-3 hours) "Modular Origami: Dodecahedron" Each participant will fold and assemble 30 sheets of 6" (15cm) square paper into a woven dodecahedron ball. I am teaching a subset in modern origami called modular origami. By assembling the 30 unit dodecahedron the participant will engage the left (logic) and right (creativity) brain hemispheres.
