British Origami Society
Spring Convention 2014
After years of being out of the loop with the BOS conventions due to working weekends, I'm finally back and it was great seeing all my lovely origami friends and making new friends :)
I was very rusty at teaching Tavin's Turtle, though everyone enjoyed the class :) I specially designed some paper with different designs and I'll upload the PDF file later.
I got to do quite a few classes. My first class, I made some waterbomb earrings with my friend Erica Thomson which I'll be giving away as 1st prize in my blog prize.
** If you would like to win the earrings (1st prize) or the brooch (2nd prize) just add a comment, facebook or tweet me **
Competition ends 31st May 2014
I taught my class just after lunch and then I got to go to Assia Brill's Curlicue presentation and class. I love the simplicity of the design nd how many designs and shapes you can make.
You can buy the book on Amazon
My last class at the convention was the paper making classs with Jonathan Korejko. I made 3 sheets of A5 paper, my little boy also joined in and made some paper too. The green paper has feathers and bits in it, the purple paper has origami words and the white paper has threads.
You can find more information on Jonathan's classes here
I won a lovely ceramic crane in the silent auction
