Here’s the long awaited update of what we made on 1st March 2015…

 

This is called Kirigami. It is a type of Origami, only this is more complicated as involves not only folding, but cutting of the folded paperas well.

 

Kirigami is a popular craft in Japan & China. It involves high levels of concentration, focus, and precision. One wrong fold or cut could destroy your effort and eventual masterpiece.

 

Of course, what we taught was very basic Kirigami. I personally felt that this craft is extremely difficult. So my hubby actually conducted this class since he claimed that Engineers are more precise!

 

OK, I must admit, this craft did not appeal to the kids, but more to the adults. Parents were impressed but their kids weren’t…LOL. Sometimes you can’t satisfy both generations. So, when adults asked if they could learn, we said YES! And they became the KIDDO of the day…for that particular time, they sat at the kiddo chair and did the craft, of course…

 

Here are the designs that we made that day:

 

The simpler ones:

Simplest of the lot, only 1 folding…

 

These looked simple but not really as the art is in the folding part. It has to be accurately sized in order to get the correct cut out…

 

My favourite…Yea, it’s Lego…LOL

 

 

These are the harder ones, it needs 5 points fold…

 

Cool huh?
