Star folds and pleats after lunch
Charles just finished making a bunch of variations on the star fold. These ALL start out as a square, folded the same way for the first few steps. Then it's decision time -- which side to hammer, which way to flatten the folded shape, whether to cut some parts off.
Next came a pleated sample. Amazing to watch this.
I've taken video too. Doubt if any will go up during the day -- have decided to sort through it tonight.
It's 3:30 and we've all been turned loose for hands on. Woohoo!!!!!!!!
