Useful Information about Origami Societies, Meetings and Websites.

Had a lot of fun in Leicester. It was great to meet some of you for the first time, and some of you for the umpteenth time :D Special thanks to Emma for organising things.

Great photos, Saj. Next time around I don't think I'll bother taking my camera - if you're there, there doesn't seem to be any point. Shame you missed the POPPADOM meeting - it was a good one!

Hi Nikhil, thank you for your kind comments regarding my website. Are you a member of Origami Mitra - I believe they hold exhibitions in India.

Diagrams for the Koala were published in the convention guide, let me just grab my copy to confirm ...
Saj


Hey Saj, I just looked at Origami Mitra a couple of days back, will plan to become a member of this community, they finished the convention in the month of January for the year 2006. :( Theres Next Time!!

I have ordered for the three Edwin Corrie books titled Animal Origami from BOS a week back, I am waiting to get my hands on them! I love his models. Great Creator. Simple and True....

I'd forgotten what an excellent design this is - having relearned it in the class, I then taught it twice more that night!

if you don't have diagrams, invest in his "animal origami 2" from BOS supplies http://www.britishorigami.info/supplies

Edwin doesn't have much spare cash (who does?) these days, so his visits to conventions are limited :cry:

Edwin Corrie Koala Model

Postby David » April 13th, 2006, 8:47 pm

The model taught at the convention Koala 3 is actually a "new" model dated 1998.
The diagrams are in the convention pack.


Nick you must have been taught well if you could remember it to teach again in the evening, who was the teacher? - perhaps other origami organisations would like to invite the teacher to their conventions :-)

An unpublished Edwin Corrie Diagram

Postby David » April 14th, 2006, 3:29 pm

Hi guys,
Have been e-chatting with Edwin and he is more than happy for me to share some of his diagrams.

Like I said the Koala is in the convention pack, but this is another all time favourite- if you saw my megre display there was also a dragon, well here is the diagrams for it.
I am not sure where it has been published, Edwin seems to think it has been.

I like folding it out of single colour thickish paper then playing around to get pleated wings a lower jaw and ears- think there is a photo somewhere.

Just put it onto the same site Anna uses it is a gif file shoud be decent resolution, enjoy

There is another koala digaram that Edwin is happy to share, I will put that into the diagrams forum.

Thanks to Edwin.

David (the wierd, if I was rich I'd be eccentric, Australian)

Cool, thx :)

I liked that dragon very much in your display but somehow managed to forget to ask you about it :roll:

About the dragon

Postby David » April 14th, 2006, 4:15 pm

Ah you see there were far more interesting people for you all to meet;-)

Saying that you and Anna were a lot of fun.

Below is one I was working on at the convention, Sharon Turvey thought the wings looked better pleated this way- like coming form the shoulder.
It was inspired by folding Fairies with Dave Brill (with handmade indian paper)
But this dragon uses good old brown paper!

Blame that on the teacher who gave out false and misleading information

David wrote:Nick you must have been taught well if you could remember it to teach again in the evening, who was the teacher?


Some guy with a weird accent who tried in vain to amuse his audience with jokes well past their sell-by date. He wasn't a bad teacher though :P

Edwin points out that this design is from 1998 and he's sending me his latest koala, hot off the press! Wonder what that will taste like? We learned a loty about koalas during the class, including some unsavoury details I won't share here!

To what the paper aspires.

Postby David » April 16th, 2006, 8:21 pm

This is a photo we took of a Koala in a tree just outside our front door last year.
I know it is not an origami one, but you have to admit- it is a lot cuter than the paper ones :)

I just remembered I had a copy on my laptop

Like I said Edwin does read this forum so the more people that say he should produce a book the better.

Nikll glad you are enjoying folding the models.
