All origami begins with putting the hands in motion. Understanding something intellectually and knowing the same thing tactilely are very different experiences. To learn origami, you must fold it. Inherent in all of the folding is the wonderful world of transformational geometry. In this workshop, students will learn unit (or modular) origami. Modular origami is the process of folding many sheets of paper in the same manner and then putting the units together to make a solid geometric shape. Students will make variations of the Sonobe cube, the Japanese brocade, stellations of the cube and octahedron, and open frame models. Using the two waterbomb bases, students will make the dual of the cube and octahedron.

Part I of this workshop will consist of constructing relatively simple models, whereas Part II will build upon Part I, enabling students to construct more complicated models.

Live Classes: Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, December 28, 29, and 30, 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time
