Folding on Weds in Tollefson

Attacking the wasteland

Daniel Blue is not happy with Tollefson.  He expresses himself in a recent post written as a www.exit133.com side B submission.  

I will be at the City Center Luncheon today which will feature (among other topics):Tollefson Plaza plans and programming
Presenter: Joanne Buselmeier, Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce
Tollefson Plaza will hold Friday lunchtime concerts and food vendors—just in time to enjoy lunch outdoors in the Northwest summer. More activities and plans are currently in the works.

So what am I going to do about it?  Rail against the wind?  Possibly.  Fold while I am doing so?  Definitely.

I am following through with a promise I made earlier this Spring to sit out in the plaza and welcome anyone who wants to learn a bit about origami.  Next Wednesday from 11:30am to 1:00pm I am going to let my fingers fly and create with paper.

I will bring paper and ideas for whoever cares to join in. 

This is not going to be a lecture but a conversation and instructions on how to fold a few models.  I will keep it simple, but if you are already an experienced folder and want to join in helping others stop on by.

Warren at Tacoma Art Supply is providing me with an awning so the sun won't beat down so hard. 

Come by and play music, eat lunch or maybe make one of these roses.  I can hear Marie Osmond singing "Paper Roses" right now.

Good idea. Just because Tollefson is designed poorly doesn't mean it can be used for something.

Next Wednesday from 11:30am to 1:00pm I am going to let my fingers fly and create with paper.

Nice. Origami s getting to be more popular and there are a lot of flat surfaces at Tollefson.

(Now if the city would allow a cafe to be built in Tollefson with outdoor seating)

D. looooves origami and I am a constant source of disappointment to her in this regard.

We may need to stop by. Maybe I'll bring some colorful props and we can kind of have a happening.

Love the Hungarian rendition of paper roses.

jenyum, bring the kids by and mine can help show them how to fold a couple of the models.
