The aims of the course are to gently introduce learners, children being supported by parents, to the art of origami by making very simple origami models potentially including: a penguin, animal head, swan, box and sailing boat. How many of these we complete will vary and depend on time availability and learner ability. The course is suitable for anyone who wants to learn basic origami skills and make some really easy origami models. Suitable for adults for and children aged 7 or more accompanied and assisted by an adult.
What will be covered on the course? What will be taught to learners?
Learners will be taught:
What will learners achieve by the end of the course?
You will need: Learners will need to have 10 sheets of A4 paper per person and safety scissors to be used under adult supervision. Plain white A4 paper is suitable, although coloured paper is preferable, especially if coloured differently on either side. I will be covering a simple process of turning A4 rectangle paper into a square ready for origami folding so it would be useful for everyone to have access to A4 sheets for this first activity.
Authentic origami paper can be purchased cheaply online or from retailers such as ‘The Works’, preferably 15 x 15 cm. However ordinary white A4 paper is fine for a first attempt at making models. You can make another model of the same design using coloured paper at a later date if you wish.
As this course is online learners will require access to a laptop, smart phone, computer or tablet. The course will be accessed through Zoom.
