Update:

Will be releasing some fun and beginner friendly origami classes before diving into the more challenging modular ones that I planned on doing when I first took the skillshare class challenge several months ago.

With that said, get ready for a dynamic origami series. Get your paper ready!

Future classe brainstorm below:

After working through a few letters myself, thought it would be best to come out with basics beginner/refresher friendly classes before diving into this one. Modular origami series in the future after some dynamic origami projects.

-simple solids

-more complex solids

-puzzle cube

-letters

Paper isn't just for writing on. Let's play with it! Join me as I show you how to use a few pieces of paper to make a 3D standing letter. In this class, you'll learn the step-by-step process for folding a single, repeatable, modular unit. Then, how to carefully fold and put those units together to build a block letter. No prior knowledge or experience with origami necessary! By the end of this class, you will have the foundation to transform paper into several three-dimensional letters or even words.
