I taught my “duck & ducklings” at the recent BOS virtual convention. Whilst I wasn’t on top form, many people managed to fold it! Diagrams in my recent “Origami Birds” book.
Two of my designs feature on an origami app created by Andreas Bauer – my “bookmark” and “plane”. I now just have sit and watch the royalty cheques come flooding in!
Joan Sallas has designed a mask using napkins and is folding them for local hospital workers. The Spanish government has requisitioned all the masks from hospitals in Catalonia and sent them to Madrid (one of the many shocking ways the Catalan people are being oppressed).
A small gift from me to you 😉
Here’s a dual purpose design, depending on which colour paper you use 😉
I had a couple of designs included in the latest NOA (Nipponese Origami Association) magazine #530 – a “Witch on a Broomstick” and “Cheshire Cat”. The latter won a prize in the International Alice in Wonderland Origami competition, run by the BOS in 1992. It’s certainly in a style I haven’t explored for decades.
Working in a school, I cut lots of A4 sheets down to squares and have started to diagram some of the models I’ve devised during idle moments using the leftover strip (rather than waste them!) Here’s the first, an interlocking flower. It should work with US rectangles as well and you can use up to a 2×1 rectangle.
A design from ’86, drawn by hand – I was so pleased when PCs were invented 😉
Thanks to my daughter Daisy, I had a design for a simple cat’s head published in “the Scratching Post” – the magazine of the North Sheffield branch of the Cats Protection organisation 😉
