Modular Origami Paper Pack

USD $14.94
USD $11.65
(You save USD $3.30)

by Michael G. LaFosse & Richard L. Alexander

This paper pack contains 350 sheets of high-quality origami paper printed in 14 different colourful patterns.

Modular origami is the art and technique of folding multiple sheets of paper and then combining and interlocking them to create a larger composite geometric model.  A single piece of artfully-folded paper is an awe-inspiring object.  When multiple folded pieces are combined to form larger models - the results are truly astounding!


This origami paper pack includes all housed in a convenient paper box:

- 350 sheets of high-quality origami paper, 3 3/8" x 3 3/8" squares.
- A variety of sizes, colours and attractive designs that have been specifically created for use with modular models
- A full-colour instructional booklet
- Instructions for 6 easy origami projects by world renowned origami artists Michael LaFosse and Richard Alexander
- Clear step-by-step instructions with easy-to-follow diagrams


The individual modules are folded separately and then assembled to form larger constructions typically by inserting tabs into specially created pockets.  Friction and tension between the tabs and pockets hold the models together so no scissors or glue are required-folders can start right immediately after opening the box!  Modular Origami Paper Pack is great for any modular paper folder and for those who want to get started in crafting these eye-catching geometric origami models.

About the Authors:
Michael G. LaFosse has been an origami artist for over 40 years, and is considered a leading authority and master of the art. An avid teacher, LaFosse co-founded the Origamido Studio, a learning center and design studio dedicated to the art of origami, and the only place in the world specializing in hand papermaking for the origami artist. Author of many books and videotapes relating to paperfolding and hand papermaking, LaFosse produces fine paper art and commercial designs for a variety of international clients.

Richard L. Alexander co-founded the Origamido Studio, a teaching center, gallery and design studio, with Michael G. LaFosse in 1996. As a designer, his specialties have included biology (systems ecology) and landscape architecture. Together, Alexander and LaFosse have created over 50 books, kits, and videos about paper and paper arts.

 

Nest Note: For many young children, the progression into origami begins with first folding a 'coin-coin' in french, or a paper fortune teller, which most school children are familiar with.  For decades, this simple paper-folding activity seems to remain a fad among young children, usually starting around the age of 6 years old.  After this, a simple paper airplane model, and then more advanced paper airplane models is a natural progression, and then onto origami.  It's not of course necessarily in this order, or with all of these for everyone.  These other activities can offer some scaffolding to slowly build the skills to introduce origami.  As well, many simple paper crafts found in some of other seasonal activity books, such as 'All Year Round' by Druitt, or others, help build paper-folding skills that can be built on later in origami.
