RUFF & HiDEF Meetings Report: July 2014

//////  Four folders attended the July 2014 RUFF (Rosamond Upbeat Folding Fanatics) meeting in Rosamond. Three folders attended the July 2014 HiDEF (High-Desert Enthusiastic Folders) meeting in Lancaster.

Origamies we folded in July:

1)  Rocking Horse (UID: xxx). Model by Jose Tomas Buitrago.
2)  Anchisaurus (UID: xxx). Folded from “Origami Dinosaurs” by Yoshihide Momotani, 1993, pg 21.
3)  Ninja Star (UID: xxx). Folded from “Folded Fun: Beginner’s Origami” (boxed kit) by Yansuku Kaneshiro, pg 30. Taught by Kyla.
4)  Traditional Flapping Bird (UID: xxx).
5)  Squirrel (UID: xxx). From “Creative Origami” by Kunihiko Kasahara, 1967, pg 57.
Taught by Elff.
6)  Mouse (UID: xxx). From “The Complete Origami Course” by Paul Jackson, 1989, pg 60.
7)  Penguin (UID: xxx). Model by Lois Bas. From “El Libro de Las Pajaritas de Papel” by Grupo Riglos, 1988, pg 90
8)  Conspirador (UID: xxx). Model by Lois Bas & Gabriel Alvarez. From “El Libro de Las Pajaritas de Papel” by Grupo Riglos, 1988, pg 94.

Pictures and information about the models can be found on my blog titled Chila’s Origami Database ( at www.chilasorigamiDB.blogspot.com ). This blog consists of one blog post for each model in my database, telling what I know about it and showing photos of it. I also note where a diagram or video can be found, if I have such information. The Unique ID (UID) is a number I invented that uniquely identifies the model and gives some indication of the type of model, per my self-determined classification. As of the time of this report, I’m still working on getting the database and UIDs set up, so no UIDs yet.

----- Whoever shows up for these meetings can sit down and fold with me or whoever else is there. I always bring plenty of paper and am always ready to teach various simple-to-intermediate origamies. Others can teach as well, or bring books or diagrams that we can explore together.
----- All are welcome, but preferably ages 10 and up. Persons younger than 8 years old usually (there are always exceptions, you be the judge) have a lot of trouble with origami and don’t enjoy the experience much. Persons under 10 should have an adult helper present to help with folding and provide behavioral guidance (I do not babysit!). Folders also need fairly good close-up vision (or glasses to get you there) and should be comfortable working with their hands, often to a high degree of accuracy
