Do you speak the language of origami? Even if you’re not yet fluent you’re always welcome to join a conversation. You can teach yourself how to ‘speak’ this beautiful language by following some of the easy origami video tutorials featured here in Origami Spirit!
Origami is ‘spoken’ all over the world, and is a language with a rich and expanding vocabulary; a vocabulary that consists of an infinite variety of shapes made from small pieces of paper. Practicing this language may be done by anyone, anywhere. Please don’t be shy!
The past few months have been an exciting and creative time for many Origami Spirit regulars. Some of us have been creating origami heart models…’speaking’ origami across many time zones and most of us have backgrounds rooted in many different cultures.
One origami conversation began last February with an origami heart dish by Ildiko Vass (Hungary).
Besides Ildikó’s own variations on her origami heart dish, paper folders from Japan, El Salvador, Singapore, Colombia, and the United States have added to this origami conversation with new models and ideas inspired by Ildiko’s original model.
This series of variations and developments demonstrate how one model, an origami heart in this case, can be modified and extended by different people to create many new models. –See related links below for video-tutorials of various models.
One of the models inspired by Ildiko’s original is the origami cube, which I designed. This model appears in the first photograph above. Click here to learn how to make it.
