Though there are few classes available regularly in West Hawaii, Pun Discoe said that you can buy a modern origami book or get one from the public library. She said that there are also free designs available online. She also recommends watching You Tube videos that offer instructions, especially those done by Sara Adams who also has a website, happyfolding.com.Read the full article here: http://westhawaiitoday.com/articles/2011/02/13/features/features01.txt
Une mine pour s'initier ou se perfectionner à l'art du pliage de papier. Vidéos très pédagogiques (en anglais).which roughly translates to:
A mine for learning or perfecting the art of paper folding. Very educational videos (in English).
This week's selection of art websites includes five websites that show you how to create your own paper art.
1. Happy Folding - http://www.happyfolding.com/ A website dedicated to the art of origami. Everything you need to know about folding paper including video 'how to' origami tutorials, an origami dictionary, folding diagrams, plans that you can print out, a large online origami gallery, and news articles about origami.
It all starts with a single sheet of paper. Then you can take it from there on the origami site Happy Folding. As you probably know, origami is the Japanese art that lets you create everything you can imagine - and some things you can't - simply by folding pieces of paper. Site owner Sara Adams explains that she got hooked on origami in 2005, and she suspects, after some time on the site, you just might get hooked, too. Browsing through the many photos of and instructions for paper rats, flowers, birds, pregnant women and even a ninja, you just might. There are step-by-step diagrams to show you how to make some of these creations, instructional videos you can sort by difficulty, type of paper and other parameters, a gallery, a dictionary and links, all celebrating what you can make with a simple sheet of paper.
Today I caught a butterfly with my bare hands. Searching among scraps of paper, I came across a veritable jungle of origami: lions, roses, dragons, elephants and scorpions tumbled out of Sara Adams' cardboard box, to crouch on the grass of Wadham gardens.You can view the full article (pdf) here. I also added some notes on the article at http://www.happyfolding.com/blog-in_the_newspaper.
