British Origami Society Spring Convention 2014

 

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.


 
 








I folded Mark Kennedy's star in Kathy's class. Kathy made some lovely brooches for everyone and I asked for one to give away as 2nd prize on this blog. The brooch is made from this lovely paper that looks like metal. it's about 1.5 inch in size.




** 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
