Class Experience

Students will learn these folds specifically:
1. valley fold
2. mountain fold
3. squash fold
4. inside reverse fold
5. outside reverse fold
Each learner will need 10 or more pieces of square paper. Even though I am only teaching 5 folds, having extra sheets of paper will help with the learning process. It also gives students the option to practice while waiting for others to complete their folds. Origami paper is recommended, but you can turn printer paper into squares by folding down 1 corner to make a triangle and cutting along the edge of that triangle.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.

About Me

Welcome to my classroom.

I love playing music. I play acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, dulcimer, and recorder. I've played in many bands over the years, and my wife and I write music together.

I have enjoyed folding...
