Cranes and Stuff Today

Folding in Tollefson

Here is a reminder that if you want to spend some time in the sun at Tollefson folding candy dishes and cranes, I'll be out there from 11:30 until around 1:00pm today.

I've got paper, bring your fingers.

I totally blanked and thought this was tonight. I'm afraid I'll miss out due to my talk at today's City Club luncheon. Have a blast and keep us posted if you do this again. Sounds really fun!

I made a crane. And an inflatable frog.

That was a lot of fun for me. The wind almost became a factor with a few paper balloons trying to escape once or twice. It may have provided some entertainment for those watching while eating their lunch.

We had a guy playing a guitar for a while there and he was pretty darn good.

Thanks for coming by TacomaMama, DavidB, Joe and company. I don't think my kids would have enjoyed scootering around as much as they did if I didn't have others to fold with.

I will have to post some pictures.

Thanks a great deal to jcbetty who was there from the start and even helped break things down afterwards.

Thanks to Warren from Tacoma Art Supply for the awning as well.

Any proposed date for doing this again?

I did it mostly to fulfill my own self pledge. I would like to do it again and had thought about taking my free Wednesdays to sit out there share a bit.

That doesn't provide much synergy for more folks coming out to the plaza and it is closer to saying "I'm gonna eat my lunch out there."

However, I could really see some fun happening if three or four folks just came by to share what hobbies, arts or crafts they had.

In the meantime, I WILL be giving a couple of longer folding sessions at the UWT Library coming up.

The first is free Origami workshop on Thursday August 7, 2008 from 10am - Noon in the Library's upstairs conference room LIB 222A. I will be teaching how to make various flowers - some of which will be used in an upcoming Origami display at the Library.

I had a fabulous time yesterday, and seem to have caught the origami bug, though I'm sad to report my cranes appear sickly when I attempt to fold them at home (it would appear, as I compared crane a, created at the plaza, to crane b, infected with some sort of wrong-origami flu, that I did some step somewhere backwards.)(big surprise, there!)

Thanks so much for sharing your time, your smallfries' teaching abilities, enthusiasm, and positivity-- It was a pleasure meeting you and spending some time catching a new creative pursuit!!
