Stained Glass Origami

January 12th - March 2nd
Michelle Hinebrook |

Students will use origami paper models to cut out and assemble 3-dimensional glass structures. Once students have practiced a range of fold techniques, they can also experiment with creating other simple origami animal models in glass or patterns of their own design! Students will also learn how to shape sheets of copper metal and wire to reinforce and display their glass sculptures. (No prior origami or glass experience is required.)
