ADROIT Origami meetings - Dallas TX

Postby Tankoda » November 28th, 2018, 3:22 am

Greetings origami people! I founded a Dallas-based Origami group about a year ago, called ADROIT Origami (Artists Doing Remarkable Origami In Texas). Check out our website.https://adroitorigami.com/.
I have not "advertised" meetings before, as we did not have a regular meeting place, but we have finally acquired a permanent place to meet. Our next meeting will be December 6, 6:30 to 8 PM at the Renner Frankford Library.
More info here: https://adroitorigami.com/events.
We would love to see you there!

Thanks!

Our next meeting will be January 3, 6-8 PM at the Renner Frankford Library.
December meeting was a big success!

Meetings are the first Thursday of every month from 6 to 8 pm in their Auditorium. They have a projector, a big room, AND they allow food. Meetings go from 6-8 (we will let you know if there is an exception).
We will be folding the Single Strip Square Curlicue designed by Assia Brill. Paper will be provided. There will also be announcements which will come along with a presentation and an origami help/show-off perhaps. We might have food, will post that when we know for sure.
Hope to see you there! Spread the word, these meetings are open to the public.

Quick update
We were just notified by the library of a scheduling mishap. As a result, we will not be able to meet in the auditorium this next meeting. Instead, we will meet inside the main library (the date and time will not change). If you walk into the library, there is an area in the back with a big table, and as I understand it, we will be meeting there. If you cannot find it right away a librarian should be able to help you, but I don't think we will be too hard to find. We will discuss at the meeting how we want to adjust to this schedule change in the future. I don't think we can have food in the library itself, so probably don't count on that. There will probably be a few other small changes that we will have to make as well.
That should be all. Happy New Year!

I have spoken with the library about how to solve the scheduling hiccup that meant we had to meet in the main library in January. We will now meet on the THIRD Thursday of every month, from 6-8 pm. Meetings will be in the auditorium.

In short, our February meeting will be Thursday, February 21, from 6 to 8 pm at the Renner Frankford library. We will meet at 6 in the main library, and switch to the auditorium at 6:30. There will be a class beforehand starting at 5:00 in the main library aimed at more experienced folders.

We've been having meetings, I just forgot to post them here! But January's a big one, so here's the scoop. If you're in the neighborhood (or the state), you should come.

Members of ADROIT,
Welcome to 2020. Our December meeting was a big success – I gave a presentation at the Lincoln Experience Center in Frisco and raised more than $500 for Paper for Water!
Our January meeting is going to be a big one – I’d like to get 2020 off to a good start for ADROIT. I still have a few things to clear up to make sure it’s possible, but the plan is that I will lead a demonstration on how to create Tissue-Foil Origami Paper!
The meeting will be Thursday, January 16, 6-8 pm at the Renner Frankford Library.

The main focus of the meeting will be a
TISSUE FOIL PRESENTATION
I will teach those who show up how to create a type of origami paper known as Tissue Foil. Tissue foil paper is created by combining tissue paper and foil using a spray adhesive. I will bring all required supplies, but if you have a specific tissue paper that you would like to use (or even a foil), or just would like to experiment, feel free to bring some of your own supplies.
There are several benefits to using Tissue Foil paper:
• Size: Since you are creating your own sheet, you can make a much larger square than is typically available at craft stores. We will mostly be making 18 inch squares at the meeting, but I will also bring supplies to cut some smaller ones. This is very useful for creating more complicated designs.
• Customizable: You can choose the color combination that you want for the front and back side of the paper. This is particularly useful if you want a combination you can’t just buy online – say you wanted to fold a toucan and need black/yellow paper. While this paper isn’t readily available to buy, using tissue foil, you can create your own.
• Shaping: Tissue foil provides the benefits of both tissue paper and foil. You can get the colors of tissue paper and the shaping abilities of foil – it holds its shape very well, allowing for dynamic finished models. At the same time, you don’t have to worry about the flimsiness of the tissue paper and the garish shininess of the foil.
• Texture: Tissue foil paper has a unique muted glimmer that comes from the semi-transparency of the tissue paper coupled with the shininess of the foil.
• Bottom line: tissue foil is a pretty great introduction to the world of making your own paper.

The demonstration will go more or less like this:
We will go outside (Yes, outside. You may want to bring a jacket or something.) where things will be set up. First I will make a sheet of tissue foil in front of everyone, going through each step so that everyone can understand. Then people can begin to make their own – I intend to have a few stations set up, so multiple people can be doing it at once. It takes several people to make a good sheet anyways, so teamwork whoop. I’ll bring all the supplies. Once everyone who wants a sheet has one, we’ll clean up and then go back inside, where we can cut them to square depending on how much time we have left.

Other business at the meeting: we may take down or adjust our display at the library.
We NEED to discuss meeting times for the coming 4 months as I may have a scheduling conflict.
I have some pretty big good news.
There will be the regular announcements and such. If we have time to fold some of the tissue foil we make, might try that.

Anyways that’s about all. I’ll keep y’all posted if anything changes. Please show up and don’t forget to invite friends, these meetings are still open to the public.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there,
Travis.
