This hands on learning experience uses modular origami to demonstrate the simplicity of fractal geometry. Fractal geometry is found everywhere in nature including the human body itself. A brief discussion with examples will also be given to help students understand this basic concept. Modular origami is the linking together of multiple origami units to create a larger structure. Each student will learn to create basic origami units and then combine them together to create an ornamental polyhedron. This workshop is designed for ages 10 and above. A simpler "Intro to Origami" workshop in available for kids ages 7+.

 

Benjamin West is a northeast Minneapolis artist with a primary focus on sculpture from hand crafting origami ornamentals to 3d printing manufactured models. Today he's happy to share the delights of turning a flat piece of paper into three dimensional sculpture through using only your hands, a little bit of puzzle solving and a a lot of imagination.


Originally a painter, Benjamin journeyed to Japan to study the art of sumi-ink paint otherwise known as Zen painting. While living in the monasteries in his search of a painting teacher what he instead found was a practitioner of origami and immediately fell in love with the meditative and joyful nature of paper craft. Today he's happy to share the delights of turning a flat piece of paper into three dimensional sculpture through using only your hands, a little bit of puzzle solving and a a lot of imagination.
