Last night I had an origami class at The Hive, with a Valentine’s Day theme.  Although I had a variety of models ready to teach, we ended up focusing on just making a rose, which is a somewhat complicated model. There were two other meetings going on in other rooms, from which we benefitted by getting spillover snacks!

We added origami leaves and a stem to the rose at the end, which you can partly see in this photo with David Brooks:

I will be teaching another class in March, although the date is yet to be determined.  The theme is yet to be determined, but some possibilities are:

  • boats and ships (not the typical newspaper sailboat – ones with more variety of shape, maybe some that float, but maybe also some with more detail but less functionality)
  • Origami spirals (kind of abstract but really cool)
  • Suggestions?

    Hi Father Green,

    The Roses are beautiful. Sorry I couldn’t be there. Will definitely make the March class. Will it be on a Thursday again? I think making ships/boats would be nice.
