838: (288/365) Maine Lobster

Posted by wonko on October 15, 2017 in 365-2017, crustacean |

A 365 Challenge is a mixture of blessing and curse: The relentless schedule amidst a full time job and part time life is challenging at times. I started this model last weekend but ran out of weekend before it was finished.

585: (35/365) Many Hands Make Light Work

Posted by wonko on February 4, 2017 in 365-2017, blarg, geometry |

As a teacher and pastoral care “tutor”, I am always looking for ways to get kids working together. At the beginning of the year the tutor group room is a mixed-year level (6-12) mixture of strangers and established friends so “GTK” exercises (Getting To Know you) are great icebreakers if you can get them actually […]

545: Stacked Triangles Tessellation

Posted by wonko on August 20, 2016 in geometry |

I spend a lot of time waiting for students to ask for assistance during practical assignment lessons. This  is a good thing – if they do not ask and are skilled enough to work independently then I have done the right thing, so it is all grist for the mill. (When kids need help but […]

543: Flock

Posted by wonko on August 13, 2016 in bird, geometry, Traditional, wtf |

I try to mark the passing of Hiroshima Day August 6 with respect and effort. Having folded the traditional 1000 cranes twice in my life (oddly, the second time my cranes were “borrowed” by a then campaigning year 11 for a community project where he received the credit and was subsequently elected School Captain … […]

Double Dragon – Paper Wedding Anniversary

Posted by wonko on May 1, 2016 in dinosaur, fantasy |

When asked by a friend of my son’s if were possible to fold something to celebrate their fist wedding anniversary, which coincidentally is the “Paper” anniversary, I thought why not: The couple are dragon fans, so it seemed obvious to include something from that world. I looked around for something that would present in a shadow […]

522: House Module – Group Activity

Posted by wonko on February 3, 2016 in geometry |

As a teacher, I have a pastoral care group of students from multiple year levels, many initial strangers and new students at the start of the year. I look for an activity that we can all focus on, conversations and collegiality usually follows. Francis Ow published diagrams on a “house” module (strangely appropriate) and hints […]

521: Robert Lang’s Yellowjacket

Posted by wonko on January 17, 2016 in creepy crawly, nature |

Flipping through the book “Origami Masters – Bugs – How the Bug Wars Changed the Art Of Origami”, you cannot help but be frightened by this model: Robert Lang, mathematician, engineer and origami design genius in this model pushes the envelope of what is possible with paper on a number of levels. The book gives […]

497: Tyrannosaurus Rex

Posted by wonko on June 2, 2015 in dinosaur |

I have been on holiday, 6 weeks is a long time between folds but I thought I would ease back into it with a simple model … then I saw Fumiaki Kawahata’s TRex and thought “screw it”: Waiting in my kept mail was the last Tanteidan of the previous subscription, thie little beauty on the […]

494: Wolfram|Alpha Logo

Posted by wonko on March 5, 2015 in geometry |

I have a low tolerance of boredom, so slack time between busy times at work required me to keep my fingers busy: This is an interesting module, made up of useful units – tiles of joined equilateral triangles with solid pockets and tabs.

472: Decoration Cube

Posted by wonko on March 9, 2014 in geometry |

I came across a bunch of variations to a 12 unit modular cube that variously used a 1×1, 2×1 and 3×1 rectangle. I settled on the square variant (in retrospect I should have used the 2×1 version – half as much paper required, but you live and learn. Initially I just was interested in the […]
