Origami BasicsMH04-Origami Basics
Michael Hattori
Friday AM

Welcome to the amazing world of origami, the Japanese art of paper folding, which stretches back over a thousand years. The beauty of traditional origami is that everything is made from a single sheet of paper - no cutting, glueing or fiddling with the paper at all. As with most of their crafts, the Japanese have taken origami to the highest level and beyond, but it has spread around the world and some of the most advanced and creative folders are not Japanese!

This class will teach you all of the basic folds, which will enable to move ahead with any kind of origami, be it flowers, animals, masks, boxes, ornaments, you name it. We will use monochrome 8" origami paper for this class, as it will be easier to handle. We will start with the simple, but useful, paper cup and end with an elegant crane. If you're more experienced, I will have a number of books you can use to try more difficult structures.

You should plan to take this class as a primer for the Origami Boxes class, unless you are already an experienced folder.

Class Fee: $25 Includes 50-sheet pack of 8" origami paper in various colors; instructions.
Level: All
Equipment: You are welcome to bring your own paper, but your kit will include a 50 sheet pack of 8" origami paper and a set of instructions. A small bone folder is also helpful, but not necessary. I will have some available for purchase.

Origami BoxesMH03-Origami Boxes
Michael Hattori
Friday PM

Ever wanted to try origami? Already love origami? Then this class is definitely for you! This is the ultimate fun in origami - from single pieces of square paper you will create little "units" that then slide magically together, and voila - you have a box!! Fold some more units and voila, you have the lid for the box!

Depending on how you slide the units together, you can create amazingly beautiful geometric designs that show on both the inside and the outside of the box. If time permits, we will also learn how to make dividers which increase the practicality of these little gems - use them to store light objects like earrings, rings, or just use them as the beautiful art objects they are! Beginners will start with a square box; more experienced folders may begin with a hexagonal box. If you have origami paper you love, by all means bring it! Typical size for these boxes is 6" square, but you may go tiny, down to 2", or as large as you like, but don't forget you have to get them home in your suitcases!

Class Fee: $25 Includes Origami paper, instructional handout.
Level: All - Knowledge of basic origami folds and terminology would be very helpful but not absolutely necessary; I highly recommend taking the Basic Origami course which precedes this class on Friday morning.
Equipment: Good scissors, small bone folder if you have one, pen/pencil, small ruler, notebook. If you have origami paper you really like, by all means bring it with you - typical size is 6" square, but you may go tiny, down to 2", or larger than 6"; just remember you have to get it home without squashing!

Offset ChainCA17-Offset Chain
Charlene Abrams
Friday Eve

Two sizes of seed beads and pinch beads are used to create this delicate chain with textural interest. The repetitive stitch is easy to remember and even though it uses very small seed beads, part of the repeat adds multiple beads at a time, making this faster to stitch than you might imagine.

This chain is suitable for necklaces, bracelets, or even earrings - you'll have enough beads in the kit to make earrings for all the nieces if you decide you don't want a necklace!

The necklace closes with a simple button and loop fastener, allowing it to do double duty as a wrapped bracelet as well.

Each half of the necklace can be attached to a focal such as Fenster in the session before this one.

A discount of $5 will be given to students who sign up for this class as well as Fenster in the afternoon.

Beading mats, scissors and thread conditioners available for use during class.
