Wednesday Post #15: Origami and Kumi Korf workshops

I have been very busy the last two weekends making paper art. First, the San Diego Origami Club met and we learned to make this wonderful box structure. Last weekend I participated in two Kumi Korf workshops. The first workshop was a whirlwind of 5 book/box structures. The second was a kinetic book structure that is housed in a lovely box. I am still finishing up the second workshop projects, but it was a wonderful weekend and my head is now swimming with ideas. Below are some pictures of what I made as well as the diagram I created for the origami box structure. I hope you enjoy.

"Hole in My Heart" structure. I still need to cover the top and bottom sections with decorative paper.

Configuration 1 of the above structure. Slots will house small books.

Configuration 2 of the above structure. I can't wait to finish.

I would like to thank Kumi for sharing her talents, humor and amazing structures with the participants of this San Diego Book Arts workshop.
