Modular Origami in Splash! 2009 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2009)
If you've folded cranes and strawberries to your heart's content and would like to try something different, come try modular origami! Unlike other models that take only one sheet of paper, modular origami involves folding many of the same units and assembling them into three-dimensional geometric shapes. We'll decide as a class exactly what we want to work on and you will get to take home what you fold!


Modular Origami in Spark! Spring 2009 (Mar. 07, 2009)
Do you like to fold? Do you like to build things? We will combine the best of both worlds by folding units out of paper and putting them together to make awesome 3D geometric pieces of art. We will decide as a class the particular model to work on. We might split into partners to make the unit folding go quickly, or we might split into larger groups to make something huge out of 50+ pieces of paper!
