Tonight (Tuesday, July 17) I will be teaching an origami class at The Annie, starting at 7PM. I’ll start off with some simple models, and will work up to more difficult designs as time and the ability of the participants allows. Among other things, we will fold a basic boat, and a bird that flaps its wings. If you are already an advanced folder, this class is probably not for you – but I’d love to meet you, and maybe set up a regular meeting for an origami group for folders of all skill levels.
Folders of all ages are welcome, although children should be accompanied by an adult. I will provide paper, but if you have your own favorite origami paper (kami? duo? washi? chiyogami? foil?), feel free to bring it along too. You can purchase origami paper locally at Island Art and Hobby (on Main Street in Gloucester), at the Liberty Tree Mall (at Michael’s or A.C. Moore), or on-line at Origami USA (members of the organization get a discount, besides access to other resources and the annual convention) or at Amazon.com.
The Annie is a non-profit, and requests a $5 donation per participant to help cover costs of operation. It is located on Washington Street, just north of the intersection with Main Street, in the Blackburn Tavern building (on the floor above Giuseppe’s).
