Joan Sallas has designed a mask using napkins and is folding them for local hospital workers. The Spanish government has requisitioned all the masks from hospitals in Catalonia and sent them to Madrid (one of the many shocking ways the Catalan people are being oppressed).
I had a couple of designs included in the latest NOA (Nipponese Origami Association) magazine #530 – a “Witch on a Broomstick” and “Cheshire Cat”. The latter won a prize in the International Alice in Wonderland Origami competition, run by the BOS in 1992. It’s certainly in a style I haven’t explored for decades.
Working in a school, I cut lots of A4 sheets down to squares and have started to diagram some of the models I’ve devised during idle moments using the leftover strip (rather than waste them!) Here’s the first, an interlocking flower. It should work with US rectangles as well and you can use up to a 2×1 rectangle.
This design was created for a competition at the BOS 50th Anniversary Convention. The original stopped at step 6, but I think the result is more aesthetically pleasing with a few extra folds. Thanks to Edwin Corrie for the very final fold! Deciding when any further steps will detract from the result is always the hardest call for me.
