The twelfth Virtual Origami Class took place on Tuesday, August 4th, 2020 from 10 am until 11:30 am, with the origami artist Stella Ricotti as our invited speaker. This virtual event was free and open to the general public.
Stella Ricotti taught how to fold a tangram with seven geometric paper shapes only using four sheets of 8.5 x 11 paper and scissors. Before the class, participants cut the four sheets of paper to make two big 8.5 x 8.5 squares, three 8.5 x 4.25 rectangles and two small 4.25 x 4.25 squares. With the two big paper squares we folded the two big triangles of the tangram. With the three paper rectangles we folded a medium-sized triangle, a parallelogram and a square of the tangram. With the two small paper squares we folded the two small triangles of the tangram. This origami design is appropriate for 8-year-olds and above.
